Real Estate

Thinking of expanding your business?  Check out Sunnyside! 

Sunnyside is a vibrant yet quaint neighborhood conveniently lo-cated just east of Long Island City in Western Queens.  We have great public transit access via the 7 line and a diverse, dense mix of residents and shoppers.  We are looking to improve our retail mix along Queens Boulevard and Greenpoint Avenue with businesses that will provide a better variety and higher quality of goods to our shoppers.  Sunnyside residents spend $227 million every year on goods and services outside of our neighborhood - and we are looking to capture more of that spending within our district.


We looked at market data and responses from our 2013 shopper survey and are especially interested in bringing these types of businesses to Queens Boulevard and Greenpoint Avenue:

Housewares store, clothing & shoe store, general merchandise (retailers that combine categories like housewares, gifts & clothing), independent coffee shop, furniture store, more full-service restaurants, bakery and a bicycle shop
