If you work the night shift and live in Queens, you’ll want to live in either Sunnyside or Woodside, according to a StreetEasy report.

The April 24 report found that city residents who need to commute into Times Square-42nd Street for their night shift have “many practical options” in Queens, Manhattan and the Bronx. However, Sunnyside tops the list, offering a median rent of $1,985 and an average 20-minute commute.

Close behind was neighboring Woodside, which offers a longer commute at 30 minutes but a slightly lower median rent at $1,900. Located slightly further east, Corona is also a viable option, where residents face an average 35-minute commute and a median rent of $1,838.

For those who work in Jamaica or at JFK Airport — which employs approximately 35,000 people — and need to access the Sutphin Boulevard-Archer Avenue station, central Queens offers a wealth of convenient housing options, according to StreetEasy. Briarwood topped the list; night shift workers there can find median asking rents of $1,725 and an average 11-minute commute on the E train, which offers transfer to the JFK AirTrain.

Neighboring Kew Gardens, which averages a 15-minute commute to the transit hub and median rent of $1,875, offers a similar option.

The Queens neighborhood with the lowest median rent to make the list was Jamaica Estates at $1,698. It also features the longest commute, via the Q54 bus, at 25 minutes.

To compile the report, analysts looked at neighborhoods with median rents below $2,000 with an average commute of 40 minutes or less to the city’s major transit and night-time employment hubs. They also considered late-night crime statistics based on NYPD records for 2010-2017.
