Sunnyside, Queens, is a primarily residential neighborhood located in western Queens, only a short subway ride, on the seven train, from Midtown Manhattan. Although it is close to the epicenter of New York City, Sunnyside maintains a far more laid-back, suburban vibe, which has made it a popular neighborhood with families. In Sunnyside, friendly neighbors spend more time getting to know one another compared to other parts of the city creating a tight-knit community. With such a welcoming atmosphere it's no surprise that Sunnyside has a burgeoning and culturally diverse food & bar scene. Another major perk of living in the neighborhood is that apartment rental prices in Sunnyside are typically much lower than in neighboring Long Island City and Astoria. One thing that Sunnyside lacks, however, is nightlife, but thanks to its central location you're only a short 25-minute subway ride from Midtown Manhattan.
