    Isn’t this a Woodside address? I used to live right around the corner, and it was Woodside then.

    What s going on in Sunnyside lately???

  3. Heartbroken

    Absolutely terrible news – my condolences to her loved ones.

  4. Ray

    I have lived 28 years on this block and have always used Woodside on my address!!

    What avenues is it between?

  6. Blue

    Whatever the location, my condolences to her family.

  7. Andrew

    It’s 46st between 48th Ave and 50th Ave. Sunnyside. Maybe the borders has changed, but all the maps say it’s Sunnyside.

  8. 5_Foot_Gremlin

    Yup. Officially a ghetto.

  9. comma

    What is this, Israel? Look at a map. There are no border disputes.

  10. Krissi

    The maps say Sunnyside, but the address is Woodside. My GPS actually doesn’t accept my Woodside address, I have to use Sunnyside, oddly enough.

    Anyhoos, I live around the corner. I was wondering what all the cops and fire trucks running around were about. Awful news :-(

  11. alicia z.

    it is not the area but the people! not a happy world!!!

  12. Bill

    This is definitely a Woodside address – zip code 11377. The way the boundary between Sunnyside and Woodside was devised years ago makes little sense. Sunnyside should encompass everything between 39th St and 50th St. and from the LIE to the LIRR tracks. However, a good chunk of that territory, south of Queens Blvd, is Woodside. In fact, Woodside (11377) goes all the way down to 43rd St. and Laurel Hill Blvd. (the service road for the BQE). In any event, the address in the story (48-16 46 St.) is directly across from the Mets and is in the Woodside postal delivery zone area. Older readers would realize that this building is just a few doors down from the old Harry’s Candy Store (long since gone).

    Its Woodside.

  14. Marilyn

    It is Woodside.

  15. Marilyn

    A little pocket of Woodside in the middle of Sunnyside.

  16. SuperWittySmitty

    She worked at the deli in Celtic Park on the corner of 43rd & 48th. Celtic Park is 11377, Woodside.

  17. comma

    Sunnyside extends from 39th St. to 52nd St., between the LIRR tracks to the north down to the LIE to the south and including the old Cavalry Cemetery. Anybody who says a building in that area is in Woodside is a landlord looking for higher rent prices.

  18. Marilyn

    Except that Woodside’s prices are lower. That particular street is Woodside and has Woodside zipcode.

  19. Hoove Hearted

    At Celtic Park, one half of the smaller building is in Sunnyside, the other in Woodside. For me, if your closest 7 train stop is Lowery or Bliss you’re in Sunnyside, if your stop is 52nd or 61st, you’re in Woodside. The post office has other ideas though.

  20. SunnysidePostHatesMe14

    Pretty soon they’re gonna call the South side of Sunnyside “WoodSide”

  21. Thurman

    A poor woman is dead and you lot are still bickering about nothing, I give up!

  22. LowerMiddleClass30somethingWhitePersonYouBlameEverythingOn


    TraBeQue, phonetically Trabeck

    Trapezoid Below Queens Boulevard

    @All. Wtf? Some girl gets murdered and we’re all fine with writing it off because the zip code is different? Whew! 11377 is one block over! My neighborhood is still safe! Yall are messed up.

  23. comma

    ZIP codes do not determine political boundaries. ZIP codes are drawn and redrawn at the convenience of the post offices. The USPS doesn’t determine you what town you live in.

  24. comma

    Re: “Woodside is cheaper”: Depends what part of Sunnyside you live in. In my experience, rent prices seemed artificially heightened in the listings claiming the buildings were in Woodside. I’m talking around 49th St. and Skillman.

  25. comma

    Oh yeah, I know you classy people living in the low 40s want nothing to do with us proles living in the high 40s, but it doesn’t mean we live in Woodside.

  26. Time flies

    Prayers and thoughts for the family of this young woman. Let the killer get the punishment he deserves.

  27. tragic

    How awful! Prayers/thoughts/condolences to her family.

  28. O'shea

    Punishment: 3 hot meals, a cot, cable tv, free edumacation, health care, dental, and recreation. All on the taxpayers dime.
    I say throw them all in a dark pit and let em fight it out.

  29. Time flies

    I know that deli. The ladies who work there are all very friendly and sweet. The owner is a good guy as well. They must all be devastated.

    What a horrible tragedy. God bless all her family and friends.

  30. CelticWinnie

    Heathens.. all of you discussing zip codes. I saw this woman every single week. She made me egg sandwiches for 12 years. ALWAYS with a smile. I pray God rests her soul in peace. This is just horrid. I’m going to be sick.

  31. Amy

    I lived there a very long time. It was starting to get bad up from 45th st on. I lived in Sunnyside and was beautiful . I guess I got out in time. I feel sorry for the women that was stabbed…

  32. Just Asking

    Ms. Quinn says: An entity killed another entity somewhere within a geographic entity. See! It’s nice. Nobody’s sensitivities get bruised!!!

  33. Anonymous

    Anywhere people live, there are problems. Idiots say that would never happen here. Stupid people say, I left just in time! Get over the idea that you are safe, wherever PEOPLE are, there can be trouble… And a murder like this seems highly personal, he may not be a danger to general society, just the poor woman. I hope she rests in peace, and that her family finds some solace along the way…

  34. Garçon Boucher

    I understand there is a collection being taken up for her family at the T&C deli where she worked at 43rd St and 48th Ave.

  35. We Lost a Good Soul

    I’m a regular customer at that deli. This woman was so kind and friendly. She made my delicious egg sandwiches w/ care, good cheer & professionalism. It’s also a testament to her character and work ethic, that she was often supervising the store in the owners’ absences.

    This is a big loss for our community, a bigger loss for her children and family.
    May she rest in peace.

  36. Anon.

    The funeral will be held Monday, July 8 from 4-7 PM at:
    Rivera Funeral
    10402 37th Avenue
    Corona – Queens, New York 11368

    Any donations would be greatly appreciated because the body has to be taken to Mexico to be buried.

    Thank you.

  37. Get a Life

    This is awful. BTW: according to new city council guidelines when you report a crime, you cannot report ethnicity. Prayers for the victim. BTW: Israel is a beautiful country and has less crime than we do. If you want to see border disputes, Comma, go to SYRIA. But you probably don’t care about that, do you?

  38. comma

    I care about Syria, I just don’t think we should be getting involved militarily over there.

    I’m talking about the INFAMOUS border disputes between the Israeli Jews and Palestinians. Don’t be dense.

  39. Get a Life

    Comma, I detect some anti-Semitism in your comment. May the poor lady rest in peace. Another terrible “domestic dispute”.
