Telling the Art Deco Story of Sunnyside

Like many New York neighborhoods, Sunnyside grew exponentially in the early twentieth century due to the development of mass-transit rail services; roadways, such as Queens Boulevard; and in this case, the completion of the Queensborough Bridge in 1909. Many of the residential buildings in Sunnyside were built during the height of the Art Deco style and feature richly decorated façades, entrances, and lobbies.

Highlights of our tour include the iconic black and gold terra-cotta entrance of the Golden Gate Apartments, the beautifully restored Packard Towers, and back-to-back twin apartment buildings by Kavy & Kavovitt. Our guide, Matt Postal, is an architectural historian, specializing in 20th century architecture and the co-author of The Guide to NYC Landmarks.
