Sunny Day in Sunnyside

Huzzah! The New York Landmarks Preservation Commission did the right thing this morning and voted unanimously to designate Sunnyside Gardens a historic district, giving the long suffering borough something to smile about for once.

At 17 blocks, the eight-decades old neighborhood will be the biggest historic district in Queens. Sunnyside Gardens has been on the National Register of Historic Places in 1984, but that never brought any legal protection. Go take a look at NYC's newest historical district. It makes for a nice stroll.

So wasn't the hearing on the Domino sugar plant supposed to occur today too?
