In 1900 cows still grazed in Sunnyside, while Long Island City slowly grew. This scene, looking towards Hunter's Point, is from Vincent Seyfried's book, 300 Years of Long Island City, 1630-1930.
Pre-Sunnyside Gardens, this 1909 map shows the construction of the Sunnyside Railroad Yard. Blocks are drawn but there is little built. In the lower right hand corner, Bliss Street ends at the number (4).
