Sunnyside Gardens, Sunnyside and Woodside offer a small town vibe within close proximity of Manhattan. Connected by the #7 subway line, each neighborhood has ample amenities such as restaurants, shopping, green space, markets and excellent public schools. Sunnyside is considered one of the City's most livable neighborhoods, it's both vibrant and diverse. Astoria offers some of the best dining options in the metropolitan area and is equally well connected to Manhattan by the N / W subway lines. Long Island City has changed dramatically in the last 15 years and is now a hive of modern living. The jewel in LIC's crown is Gantry State Park and Hunter's Point South Park where one can catch a ferry to Manhattan or sit and take in one of the best views of Manhattan and Roosevelt Island.
Astoria has a dining out culture that is unparalleled in Queens West. It’s a diverse multi-cultural neighborhood with the East River to the west and gorgeous Astoria Park under the RFK Bridge. Other things to explore aside from the many restaurants are the Noguchi Museum, Socrates Sculpture Park, The Museum of the Moving Image and the Bohemian Beer Garden.
