From the Daily News:
With a municipal parking lot smack in the middle of Sunnyside's main shopping district, finding a spot to run a quick errand or grab a bite to eat would seem to be simple enough.
Like other areas Queens News is highlighting for its "Queens Parking Crunch" series, Sunnyside's shopping district is yet another area plagued with parking rules that locals say hurt the community.
The municipal lot, located beneath the elevated No. 7 train tracks, is inundated with commuters, leaving no room for shoppers and restaurant patrons, locals said. And finding a metered spot along Queens Blvd. is also a headache, especially because the thoroughfare becomes a no-standing zone during rush hour.
