Two new Open Streets come to Sunnyside

With residents yearning for more open space in light of the pandemic, New York City has added two new blocks to the Open Streets program.

Last week, the city added 47th Street from 39th Avenue to Skillman Avenue, as well as 49th Street from 39th Avenue to Skillman Avenue, to the program.

Collectively, they represent a 0.38-mile stretch of new Open Streets, which bars car traffic in most cases, leaving it open for bikers, pedestrians and other users of the road.

The two blocks will be managed by the 39th Avenue Open Street Coalition.
