The apartment at 39-70 46th St. is available Oct. 1.


The brick houses and tree-lined streets of Sunnyside Gardens can feel like an English village, but the neighboring Sunnyside rail yard and the trains rattling over Queens Boulevard locate it firmly in New York City. 

This two-bedroom apartment, 39-70 46th St., unit #1, is in what is called a garden apartment building (this is not to be confused with a garden apartment on the ground-floor level of a townhouse). This listing comes with access to a backyard, opening onto one of the common courtyards that characterize the master-planned neighborhood, which dates back to the 1920s. The apartment is listed for $2,950.

The kitchen is compact, with limited counter and cupboard space.

It connects to a narrow dining area with wood flooring.

The living room has wood floors as well, and a leafy view.

The bedrooms look out on lots of foliage too.

The bathroom hasn't been updated in a while, but it looks serviceable.

The yard has a paved patio area. According to the listing, the current tenant is willing to sell the air conditioner units and washing machine in the apartment.

The apartment is two and a half blocks from the members-only Sunnyside Gardens Park, and two long blocks from the 46th Street-Bliss Street station, where you can catch the 7 train. Pets are allowed.
