Many describe Forest Hills as a suburb in a city. A diverse community located in central Queens, Forest Hills is an upscale, tranquil, clean neighborhood in the backyard of Manhattan. One of the biggest advatages of living in Forest Hills is the access to various means of transportation. Forest Hills is five subway stops and a world away from Manhattan. Besides a few high-rises here and there, the skyline is low and the houses are detached. The commercial streets are modest and the community is family-oriented — a neighborhood best known as a place to settle with your family.
The neighborhood’s two main commercial streets are Metropolitan Avenue and Austin Street. Austin Street is known to be trendier, housing brands such as Gap and Banana Republic and soon to be the Apple store, while Metropolitan Avenue is home to antique shops and longtime restaurants.
The neighborhood of Forest Hills has three parts. The most distinctive is Forest Hills Gardens, a planned community of Tudor- and Victorian-style homes and small apartment buildings with 6,000 residents. North of the expansive Queens Boulevard are streets of low- and midrise condo and co-op buildings that give way to suburban-style stretches of detached homes. Toward the south and west ends of the neighborhood are newer single-family detached homes, many of them recent replacements of teardowns. Besides a few high-rises here and there, the skyline is low and the houses are detached. Curved streets and Tudor-style buildings cover the neighborhood’s midsection, which is taken up by this planned community named Forest Hills Gardens. Forest Hills Gardens has been home to many famous names including Dale Carnegie, Geraldine Ferraro. It is also home to the Forest Hills Tennis stadium which held the U.S. Tennis open until about 20 years ago.
Rego Park is located in Queens, NY. It is bordered to the north by Elmhurst and Corona, the east and south by Forest Hills and the west by Middle Village. Aside from the many apartment buildings, multi-family, and railroad houses which make up Rego Park, some houses in Rego Park are in the colonial and Tudor styles with slate roofs. This is especially so in an area called the Crescents, named for its semicircular shaped streets. There is easy access to Manhattan via the 63rd Drive subway stop. Along Queens Boulevard, Rego Park is home to some of Queens' most popular shopping destinations, including the Rego Park Center (formerly Alexander's department store), a retail complex with a large Sears, Bed Bath & Beyond, Marshalls, and Old Navy locations. A new shopping center on 62nd Drive across from Rego Park Center, houses a Kohl's, a Century 21 (department store), Costco, T.J. Maxx, Toys 'R Us, Aldi and Payless ShoeSource, with more stores coming in the near future. The Queens Center Mall, the borough's largest, lies just to the west in Elmhurst. Many smaller stores, bakeries, pharmacies and restaurants can be found along 108th Street and 63rd Drive.
Kew Gardens is a triangular-shaped neighborhood in central Queens bounded to the north by the Jackie Robinson Parkway, to the east by Van Wyck Expressway and 131st Street, to the south by Hillside Avenue, and to the west by Park Lane, Abingdon Road and 118th Street. This 320-acre area of about 25,000 people is mostly residential. Forest Park and the neighborhood of Forest Hills and Forest Hills Gardens lie west of the neighborhood. The neighborhood is accessible thanks to its surrounding expressways and the Union Turnpike-Kew Gardens subway station. The commute on the E or F train to Midtown Manhattan is easy and convenient - only about thirty minutes.
Kew Gardens has a small town feel with a city appeal. The business zone runs along Lefferts Boulevard, around the corner from Austin Street, including the movie theater, some stores and restaurants, a bagel shop and the Long Island Rail Road station. The express subway stop is to the north, on Queens Boulevard next to Borough Hall and the county courthouse; a few businesses nearby serve that area. From the Long Island Rail Road station, it can take as little as 17 minutes to reach Pennsylvania Station. There is also an express subway station on the E and F lines, and the Grand Central Parkway and Van Wyck Expressway are nearby.
