Virtually every option for nightlife and activity as well as transportation within walking distance. I am fortunate to live exactly equidistant between two of the more established and active city neighborhoods - Belmont and Hawthorne. I am on the 'other side' of my career and lifestyle - as an empty nester, the urban/neighborhood mix of Sunnyside (and my ability, let's face it, to afford it) make it "just right" for me. I would like to see more ownership - but I do enjoy the young hipsters running about who keep me humble about how cool I am while forcing me to keep a fresh outlook. If you enjoy city living while keeping a homey, "chill" very-"Portland" feel, Sunnyside is it.

Quirky little area with a lot of shops and restaurants to try out. I enjoy living in this area too because of all of the neighborhoods, plus, the people are pleasant.
Centrally located. Surprisingly quiet neighborhood for there being a cluster of businesses in the area. This neighborhood is also home of the Sunnyside Elementary school that has an awesome garden. The street corners are painted and neighbors are friendly. This is crunchy mama and hipster friendly territory.
