Sunnyside is a peaceful suburban area that caters to families and is gradually gaining popularity among young professionals looking for a reprieve from city life. The neighborhood boasts a diverse population that includes Irish, Italian, Greek, and, more recently, Latin American and Asian immigrant communities. Families and young professionals will find plenty to enjoy here, including great food, spacious homes, and affordable prices.

Sunnyside is predominantly a residential neighborhood with a variety of housing options such as apartment complexes, row houses, and single-family homes. Sunnyside Gardens Historic District was one of the first planned communities in the United States. It was designed based on the ideas of the "garden city" movement, which aimed to create a mix of residences, agriculture, and industry that captured both urban and rural elements. These dwellings are more reasonably priced than other parts of the city and offer more space. The architectural styles in the area range from grand Victorian homes to modern apartments.

The Sunnyside Arch is a prominent landmark that greets visitors at the intersection of Queens Boulevard and Greenpoint Avenue. Nearby is the beautifully landscaped Sunnyside Gardens Park, which has playgrounds, sports fields, and a community center. The Thalia Spanish Theatre hosts a variety of cultural events and performances throughout the year and is definitely worth a visit. For shopping, the Queens Boulevard retail district has a wide range of stores, restaurants, and bars. Visitors can also enjoy the many cafes in Sunnyside, which are perfect for a quick pick-me-up.
