    Oh, Wao! Look what people are telling about Sunnyside! The name "Sunnyside" originates with the Bragaw family, French Huguenots who had purchased the land in 1713 and named their estate "Sunnyside Hill". Sunnyside was a rural hamlet mostly consisting of small farms and marshlands. Sunnyside is a diverse neighborhood with an active arts scene and deep progressive roots. It is known for hosting the first St. Pat’s for All Parade in 2000, bringing together the neighborhood’s Irish and L.G.B.T.Q. communities. “It really feels like an incredibly cosmopolitan, but the suburban community,” said Lauren R. Bennett, 33, an associate broker with the Corcoran Group, who bought her first home in Sunnyside in 2018, paying $525,000 for a two-bedroom condominium with a 300-square-foot terrace on 49th Street and 43rd Avenue. It has that small-town vibe where everyone is so friendly, and you run into friends on the street. It is patrolled by the New York City Police Department's 108th Precinct. Politically, Sunnyside is represented by the New York City Council's 26th District. #sunnyside
