UPPER DITMARS — A majority of Astoria voters cast their ballots for Hillary Clinton last week, but some pockets of the neighborhood saw a higher number of Donald Trump voters, with more than 40 percent opting for the Republican in one district.

The most residents who voted for Trump were clustered around Upper Ditmars/Astoria Heights, where the number in several districts surpassed the 18.4 percent of Trump voters citywide, a DNAinfo map of the election results show.

Election District 54 — bound by Hazen Street, 21st Avenue, 45th Street and the East River by Rikers Island Bridge — had the most Trump voters in Astoria, with nearly 41 percent, or 161 votes, choosing the president-elect.

Several neighboring districts also saw a higher percentage of Trump voters. Election District 46, for example — bound by Hazen Street, 76th Street and Astoria Boulevard North — had almost 39 percent of its votes go to Trump.

The parts of Astoria with the highest turnout of Hillary Clinton voters were located on the Hallets Point peninsula, results show.

Election District 3, which is located along the south side of the peninsula near Goodwill Park and bounded by 8th Street and Astoria Boulevard, saw nearly 96 percent of votes go to Clinton.

Across Queens, almost 22 percent of voters in the borough cast their ballots for the president-elect, while 75 percent chose Clinton, according to the results.
