46 St-Bliss St

46 St-Bliss St

Bliss Street — this station’s former name — came from inventor, shipbuilder and industrialist Neziah Bliss, who owned most of the area’s land during the 1830s and 40s, including part of Sunnyside (Forgotten NY). His name was dropped from the station during the 1920s until 2003, when the efforts of several community members, including Pat Dorfman of Access Queens, had it’s historical moniker restored (Times Weekly). Today, 46th-Bliss St features a 1999 faceted glass work by Yumi Heo, titled “Q is for Queens.”
