Sunnyside Gardens in Queens was the first “Garden City” development in the United States. Architects Clarence Stein and Henry Wright, along with landscape architect Marjorie Cautley, designed Sunnyside Gardens as a complete community based on a human scale. Developed between 1924 and 1928, the community includes 1,202 housing units on 77 acres of land. Rows of simplified homes front the street grid, creating a shared landscaped garden space on the interior of each block. Designated June 2007
