Great to see Sunnyside Shines getting participation from restaurants on Skillman (who are not in their district). The Skillman Project/Sunnyside Chamber have been completely absent of leadership this year. I wonder if they’re even doing holiday lights?


Better take the 7 train or walk. Where will everyone park to allow out of neighborhood people to support the Sunnyside restaurants, JVB?

No need to be concerned

If you only took a look at the plan you’d notice that exactly ONE metered spot was removed on skillman. There are more restaurants participating in this non-Sunnyside Chamber event than parking spots affected on blocks on either avenue. There is also a more than ample offering of commercial parking in the area, so parking will not be problem whatsoever.


yeah, i have enough of the horrid 7 train during the week. i dont need to suffer through it during the weekend too.

Simultaneously, the New York City Council passed laws that compounded these challenges, notably the elimination of punitive segregation in city jails and qualified immunity for police officers. These actions have collectively undermined public safety and constrained law enforcement effectiveness.
