Neighborhood: Forest Hills, Queens

Population Density: Forest Hills is a heavily residential neighborhood with relatively quiet streets. The neighborhood’s population density is roughly 65% higher than Queens in the aggregate.

Adjacent Neighborhoods: Rego Park, Middle Village, Kew Gardens, Woodhaven

Public Transit: E (Forest Hills / 71st Ave., 75th Ave.); F (Forest Hills / 71st Ave., 75th Ave.); M/R (67th Ave., Forest Hills / 71st Ave.); also Q23, Q54, Q60, QM6, QM11, QM12, QM18, QM21, and X63 buses.

What’s Here?: Forest Hills has a few distinct areas. North of Queens Boulevard, there is some higher density housing, including apartment buildings, co-ops, and condos.

In the eastern heart of the neighborhood is Forest Hills Gardens, an exclusive development designed in the early 1900s with British garden city communities in mind. Its lush landscaping and curving streets make it a parklike enclave. The New York Times has called it “a Tudor-style time capsule.” In the southern section of the neighborhood, there are several upscale single- and multifamily homes. Austin Street is the main shopping area. Metropolitan Avenue and Queens Boulevard are also bustling streets.

History: In the 1600s, Englishmen traveled from the Massachusetts Bay Colony to found “Whitepot,” which would later become “Forest Hills.” In the late 1800s, Samuel Lord, the founder of Lord & Taylor, owned several properties that were purchased later by Brooklyn attorney Cord Meyer. In the early 1900s, the Cord Meyer Development Company developed Forest Hills Gardens. Frederick Law Olmsted, Jr., son of the landscape architect of Central Park, designed the landscape for the Gardens community.

Activities: Forest Hills is an ethnically diverse neighborhood with a correspondingly diverse range of restaurants. Explore Austin Street and Continental Avenue for various kinds of shopping. According to the Forest Hills Chamber of Commerce, Forest Hills store owners abide by the motto, “We are large enough to serve you and small enough to know you.” Shop the more local Metropolitan Ave. for antiques.

Or spend time in one of the several nearby parks and playgrounds, including the 898-acre Flushing Meadows Corona Park, Forest Park (over 500 acres) and the smaller MacDonald Park and Ehrenreich-Austin Playground. Forest Hills is also home to the private West Side Tennis Club, which hosted several US Open Tennis Championships up until 1977. Or check out the Forest Hills Greenmarket, which is open in front of the Forest Hills Post Office on Sundays in the summer and fall.
