Located in the Mid-Island region of Staten Island, Sunnyside is most famously known for its two parks: Clove Lakes Park and Silver Lake Park, that border on the west and east, respectively. The neighborhood is named for a boarding house that was established there in 1889 but was originally known as Clovenia or Clove Valley. Clove Road, which happens to be Sunnyside’s northern boundary, is also one of the island’s main thoroughfares. The southern boundary runs along the Staten Island Expressway. The neighborhoods of Grymes Hill, West Brighton, Castleton Corners, and Grasmere border Sunnyside.
