Flooded again

I live in a 6 flat with 5" diameter gutter spouts that drain beside our building. I am looking for easily installed/attached gutter extensions to divert rain water away from our building to our alley, about 60' away. Are any flexible hose products out there?

The big box stores carry 4" black corrugated drain pipe just for that purpose. As Wirepuller mentioned, they come in larger sizes too, but you may need to seek out a plumbing store to find them. They will also have the attachments required to easily transition from the downspout to the pipe.

Be sure that wherever you discharge the water is appropriate and won't cause other issues for neighbors.
