Situated across the street from beautiful Sunnyside Park, the Sunnyside Garden Apartments feature 472 classic apartments in a series of six-story elevator buildings and four-story walkups. The impressive complex was built by Phipps Houses in 1931 to provide well-designed homes at affordable rents for New Yorkers.
The Sunnyside Garden Apartments are renowned for their unique architecture and brickwork, and their lush interior gardens— designed by famed landscape architect Marjorie Sewell Cautley. In 2007, the City of New York officially designated the complex part of the Sunnyside Gardens Historic District.
While the Sunnyside Garden Apartments’ exterior elements have been maintained true to its designers’ vision, many aspects of the complex have been updated extensively inside and out. Over the past six years, the building has undergone numerous major capital improvements to modernize kitchens and layouts, replace older building systems, and preserve the complex’s beauty.
The complex has also been updated with extensive “green” improvements, including a new energy-efficient heating system, new insulation, ENERGY STAR certified refrigerators and energy-efficient lighting in apartments and buildings.
The neighborhood of Sunnyside Gardens offers quiet tree-lined streets, a bustling restaurant and pub scene, plenty of shopping, and convenient commute to Manhattan, Long Island and the Queens Center Mall. It is the perfect location—and value—for families, single professionals and anyone seeking the perks of the city without the price tag.
