"great for families"
Sunnyside, Queens is a great neighborhood for families.

Every Saturday morning there is a farmer’s market near one of the playgrounds, and there is also a Community Supported Agriculture program. There are great family centered programs and events, and you can walk to PS 1 in Long Island City and to the heart of Astoria and to Jackson Heights in not very much time.
