See Greenpoint Ave. right there, running across that Queens neighborhood? I say Sunnyside will be the next neighborhood to be gentrified/homogenized/suburbanized/mallified by the hipsters or otherwise.
New York Magazine did put Sunnyside as the 3rd most livable neighborhood in NYC.
It’s a leafy quiet neighborhood and has the feel of a quaint little town. It has affordable rents, lots of Irish pubs and ethnic restaurants, and an old school movie theater, Center Cinemas, showing first-run films for $5 matinee, and $7 regular price. Nightlife is somewhat lacking but it’s only minutes away from Greenpoint, Long Island City, Astoria, and Uptown and midtown Manhattan. It has the feel and reminds me of pre-gentrified/NYU’d East Village.
Hope I just didn’t put a death knell to this neighborhood.
Also, do these 50 things before Queens gets completely gentrified.
