Sunnyside Apartments
Queens

In short, Sunnyside is sort of at a crossroads - in future years it may very likely become the next “it” place in Queens, along with LIC and Astoria, but for now it still enjoys cheaper rent and a 10-15 minute subway ride to Times Square.

The emblem of Sunnyside is the timeworn “Welcome to Sunnyside” arch at 46th Street (a reminder of its days as “Sunnyside Gardens”, one of the first planned communities in the US), but it could also be the old, sandy cement 7 line that runs down the center of Queens Boulevard. Sunnyside has the feel of a neighborhood caught between other neighborhoods, a place between places, but it’s also got a lot of history and its own endearing traditions.

More about Sunnyside

It should be noted that studios are much more rare than 1, 2 or 3 bedroom variants. Prices depend on location; proximity to Queens Boulevard and the 7 train is going to mean higher rent. Most buildings are pet-friendly, but in-unit laundry isn’t guaranteed. Astoria and Long Island City are a few subway stops away on the Manhattan side, while Elmhurst, Jackson Heights, and Woodside are just a few stops further into Queens.

LaGuardia Community College is within walking distance, making the neighborhood vibe “younger” than that of nearby Woodside or Elmhurst. Sunnyside is a very convenient location for car owners and commuters alike, and enjoys much of the diversity and ethnic cuisine Queens is famous for. Queens Boulevard is lined with things to do, and it very much dictates the flow of life. Molly Blooms is a popular Irish pub on the boulevard, and Sunnyside Pizza is the signature pie spot. Salt and Fat (Asian Fusion), De Mole (Mexican), and Natural Tofu (Korean) are three other popular dinner choices.

Sunnyside is served by the 7-train, which makes several stops throughout the neighborhood, namely at 33rd, 40th, and 46th Street. The Q32, Q39, Q60, Q104, and B24 buses make stops along Queens boulevard as well.
