Forest Hills, a neighborhood in central Queens comes in three parts. Forest Hills Gardens, built as a planned garden city community starting in 1909 and still the most exclusive address in Queens. Home for many is in apartments, co-ops, and condos along and on the north side of Queens Boulevard. West and south of Forest Hills Gardens are Central Queens-style single- and multi-family homes, developed in the 1920s through 1940s. The New York Times characterizes Forest Hills as giving its residents an urban vibe with a quieter suburban lifestyle and points to its quick and accessible transportation to Manhattan.
Forest Hills has a longstanding association with tennis: the Forest Hills Stadium hosted the U.S. Open until 1978 and the West Side Tennis Club offers grass courts for its members. The area’s main commercial street, Austin Street, contains many restaurants and chain stores and entertainment. Forest Hills Subway Station is a main station that connects a few subway lines.
