Residents Oppose Sunnyside Gardens Move

Sunnyside render

Residents of the Sunnyside Gardens historic district are circulating a letter opposing the development of a lot at 39th Avenue and 50th Street, according to the blog Queens Crap. The proposed development would move a 1931 aluminum house to the site, but the local group calls it a “smokescreen” to introduce new residential development. Because the area is a historic district, the Landmarks Preservation Commission will have to approve all changes. The plan will be presented at a Community Board Two hearing on Wednesday at 7 pm. The meeting will take place at 43-22 50th Street off Roosevelt Avenue, 2nd floor. This will be followed by a Landmarks hearing, which could happen as soon as July 9. GMAP
