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

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

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

    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 :-(

    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).

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

    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.

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

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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…

    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.

    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?

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