Why is Sunnyside Ave so wide between Milwaukee and Narraganset?

I've noticed this many times driving down it, and its always puzzled me as to why it's so wide here. It almost looks like a failed main street like Montrose. I have heard once that supposedly many many years ago, there used to be railroad tracks down this street. My brother overheard this during the Jefferson Park block party, or some sort of large party held in Jefferson Park I think during the summer.
Can anyone elaborate on this or has heard something similar about the street? Or is there some boring explanation as to why its so wide (ie non-railroad related, lol!)?
