This may just be the most diverse neighborhood on planet Earth! It;s unreal! Go read the wikipedia demographics if you dont believe me. If MLK was alive, he would have a home here. Small local shops, friendly neighbors, mostly 1st gen or 2nd gen immigrants.FOODIE PARADISE!!! Snacks from countries you never knew were imported here. Name a country and you will find ingredients to cook their food or a restaurant to order it. Budget conscious area!

Even at late hours it is safe, and even the young dealers are respectful and dont catcall or bother you at all. Great community vibe. Commute is literally 15 mins to Grand Central. You would have to live an hour or more from midtown to live in a place with rent as affordable as Sunnyside! You can rent a studio for the price of a ROOM in Manhattan and BK.

Sunnyside is a beautiful, quaint neighborhood just outside the city. Its an easy commute into Manhattan on the 7 train. The town itself is pretty amazing. YOu have everything you need in it; from restaurants, bars, bodegas, supermarkets, dog parks, regular parks, and even farmers Markets that come every Saturday morning. As if that wasn't enough the people in Sunnyside are so friendly and everyone always says hi. I real family feeling to the town.
I was born in raised in this great neighborhood, located in Queens, New York. For over 25 years I have been able to learn many cultural varieties due to the large cultural diversity. Many small businesses within the neighborhood also show support for the community which I truly adore. The neighborhood has also been recently undergoing gentrification, where may affect some positively and others negatively. In my opinion, It has been a great change to the community for the betterment of the economic and social aspects of the community. I would like to see Sunnyside continually improve on decreasing crime rate, create more charitable events, and also provide volunteer work for people like me who intend on giving back to the community.
