Sunnyside: Your Friendly Oasis in Queens

Neighborhood Overview and Community Charm

Sunnyside, a middle-class gem in the western part of Queens, is a small, friendly enclave with borders touching Hunters Point, Long Island City, Astoria, Woodside, and Maspeth. In this tight-knit area, you’ll know your neighbors, and friendly smiles abound. Despite its size, Sunnyside boasts three parks, including one with a dog run. The neighborhood offers diverse dining and bar options, blending upscale hipster joints with classic ethnic eats, representing Irish, Colombian, Tibetan/Nepali, Ecuadorian, Turkish, and Romanian cultures.

Family-Focused Living

Known for good schools and a strong middle-class family presence, Sunnyside is humorously dubbed “Cheap Park Slope” due to the abundance of baby carriages. Social options for families abound, from mommy and me yoga to playgroups and daycare events.

Sunnyside Gardens: A Historic Gem

The North Side’s Sunnyside Gardens, a historic gem, houses the only other private park in NYC besides Gramercy Park. This area’s townhomes are desirable and slightly pricier, adding a unique touch to the neighborhood.

Queens Boulevard and Transportation

Bisected by bustling Queens Boulevard, Sunnyside is traversed by the main transportation line—the 7 train. Beyond the avenue, discover quiet residential streets, small parks, and the historic Sunnyside Gardens, one of the country’s first planned communities.

A Growing Alternative

While Sunnyside has thrived under the radar, it’s gaining attention from Manhattan and Brooklyn expats seeking affordable alternatives. With a shorter Midtown commute than several “hot” parts of Brooklyn, Sunnyside is becoming a sought-after haven.
