Queens Gazette wrote about the changed parking regulations on Queens Blvd in Sunnyside that Senator Gianaris helped bring about. It is important that city services benefit Sunnyside residents and businesses rather than people simply passing through the area.

The city Department of Transportation (DOT) Commissioner Janette Sadik-Khan, Councilmember Jimmy Van Bramer, Congressmember Joe Crowley and state Senator Michael Gianaris announced that short term metered parking is being added and parking regulations are being adjusted along Queens Boulevard in Sunnyside to make parking more accessible for motorists, especially the customers of local businesses lining the corridor.


“Those of us living and working in Sunnyside have experienced the frustrations of parking regulations and other city services that do not serve our community but only benefit those passing through the neighborhood,” said Gianaris. “Sunnyside is a great and growing community that is seeing more and more young families move to it every day. I am pleased that these parking regulations are being changed to better reflect the needs of our community members and small businesses, which will allow Sunnyside to continue to flourish.”
