Forest Hills, NY Information

Forest Hills is an affluent neighborhood located in the New York City borough of Queens.

The neighborhood is disproportionately home to the upper-middle class, of whom the wealthiest often live in the Forest Hills Gardens section.

Historically, Forest Hills has had many Jewish residents. This is not as true today, as the neighborhood is now 24% Asian, 12% Latino, and 4% black.

Forest Hills has the multiple-service Forest Hills–71st Avenue subway station (E F M R trains) at the intersection of Continental Avenue and Queens Boulevard. The local 75th Avenue stop (E F trains) is also in the area, and some entrance/exits of the express Kew Gardens – Union Turnpike station (E F trains) service the southeastern portion of Forest Hills. The neighborhood also has two commuter train stations, the Forest Hills and Kew Gardens railway stations of the Long Island Rail Road. Several MTA Bus-branded buses, including the Q23, Q60, and Q64 local buses and QM4, QM11, QM12, and QM18, serve the area (no New York City Bus routes serve the area, however).

Forest Hills is bordered by two of the more sizable parks in Queens managed by the New York City Department of Parks and Recreation: the 1,255 acres (5.08 km2) Flushing Meadows–Corona Park, which is the site of two World’s Fairs (in 1939 and 1964) and the iconic Unisphere;[18] as well as the 544 acres (2.20 km2) Forest Park. Within Forest Hills, some of the more popular parks and playgrounds include the Yellowstone Municipal Park – Katzman Playground (located on Yellowstone Boulevard, between 68th Avenue and 68th Road); the Annadale Playground (located on Yellowstone Boulevard, between 64th Road and 65th Avenue); the Willow Lake Playground (located off the Grand Central Parkway, between 71st and 72nd Avenues); the Ehrenreich-Austin Playground (located on Austin Street, between 76th Avenue and 76th Drive); and the Russell Sage Playground (located on 68th Avenue, between Booth and Austin Streets).
