After William Steinway moved his piano factory to Astoria, he bought this riverfront villa, originally built for Benjamin T. Pike, a manufacturer of scientific instruments. Steinway was the youngest of three sons of the company’s founder, Henry Steinweg. His brothers refined the art of piano-making, but it was William who promoted the instrument as a symbol of refinement among the middle class.
