Saturday, June 3, 2017

Queen of Angels Church Parish Center, Corner of Skillman Avenue and 44th Street ( 2:00 PM - 4:00 PM )

The Queens Memory Program, together with the website Bliss Street Sunnyside (www.sunnysidestories.website), will host a re-telling of stories from people who lived in Sunnyside as children during the 1940s and 1950s. This event will be held on Saturday, June 3 at the Queen of Angels Church Parish Center on the corner of Skillman Avenue and 44th Street. Contributors to Bliss Street Sunnyside will discuss that time with our guests -- the people, the politics, and the ambience of Sunnyside of old. The Queens Memory team will also be on hand to digitize any historic photographs of Sunnyside that people bring to the event.
