Sunnyside Neighborhood Summary

To the east and west of Sunnyside lie both Clove Lakes Park and Silver Lakes Park and Golf Course, and to the south is the Staten Island Expressway, Sunnyside's direct artery to the Verrazano Bridge and Manhattan.

The Sunnyside neighborhood is small and friendly, with many of its residents working as civil servants. Thanks to its proximity to the Verrazano-Narrows Bridge just three exits away, Sunnyside is one of the best neighborhoods on Staten Island for commuters. Its convenience to the bridge, not to mention the many parks and amenities nearby, has made Sunnyside popular amongst those looking to relocate to island and away from the busy urban atmosphere of Manhattan.
