Betty Blunnie, Clip 3: Sunnyside is a good community
Collection: Queens Memory Project Collection at Queens College Libraries' Department of Special Collections and Archives: Betty Blunnie
Description: Ms. Blunnie says housing in Sunnyside is still the same as it used to be, but many of the buildings are now co-ops. She says it's good to preserve the atmosphere of Sunnyside. Sunnyside was like a little town, especially on Skillman Avenue, and remains that way today. It's a good community with active members including Joe Sabba who owned the Woodside Herald and Lou Lodati. The neighborhood named a park on 41st and Skillman Avenues after Lodati.
