Sunnyside Gardens is the historic heart of the neighborhood. Inspired by the English Garden City movement, it was built from 1924 to 1928. This collection of brick townhouses surrounding common garden mews takes up approximately 55 acres and 17 city blocks. The homes were designed for working families with the intent to provide fresh air and green space. Designers allocated three acres of the original development to Sunnyside Gardens Community Association, becoming New York City’s largest private park. Nearly 100 years later Sunnyside Gardens offers a strong sense of community, as intended by the visionary men and women who planned the neighborhood.
