Forest Hills is a neighborhood in the New York City borough of Queens.[1] 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. Originally, the area was called Whitepot.[2] The development of adjacent Forest Park began in 1895.

Neighborhood[edit]

Austin Street, the main shopping area
Southeastern portion of Austin Street with typical Queens six-story red brick apartment buildings on one side and residential homes on the other

In 1906, Brooklyn attorney Cord Meyer bought abutting land made up of six farms (those of Ascan Bakus, Casper Joost-Springsteen, Horatio N. Squire, Abram V. S. Lott, Sarah V. Bolmer, and James Van Siclen) and then renamed the aggregated 600 acres Forest Hills. In 1909, Margaret Sage, who founded the Russell Sage Foundation, bought 142 acres (0.57 km2) of land from the Cord Meyer Development Company. The stated plan was to build good low-income housing and improve living conditions of the working poor, but the resulting huge property values made this claim totally impractical. Grosvenor Atterbury, a renowned architect, was given the commission to design Forest Hills Gardens. The neighborhood was planned on the model of the garden communities of England. As a result, there are many Tudor-style homes in Forest Hills, some more sprawling ones located in Forest Hills Gardens while most are located in the Cord-Meyer section (loosely bounded by 68th Avenue on the north; 72nd Road on the south; 108th Street on the west; and Grand Central Parkway on the east).

The southern part of Forest Hills contains a particularly diverse mixture of upscale housing, ranging from single-family houses, attached townhouses, and both low-rise and high-rise apartment buildings. South of the Long Island Rail Road, the Forest Hills Gardens area is a private community that features some of the most expensive residential properties in Queens County. It was subject to restrictive covenants until the mid-1970s.[3]

Forest Hills Gardens was named "Best Community" in 2007 by Cottage Living Magazine. The adjacent Van Court community also contains a number of detached single-family homes. There are also attached townhouses near the Westside Tennis Center and detached frame houses near Metropolitan Avenue. Finally, there are a number of apartment buildings scattered throughout the community. The most notable high-rise apartment buildings are The Continental on 108th St, Kennedy House, the Pinnacle, and the Windsor. On the northwestern edge of Forest Hills, on 62nd Drive and 108th Street, immediately adjacent to the Long Island Expressway is a NYCHA (New York City Housing Authority) low-income housing project that provoked controversy[4] among the residents in the more prestigious areas of Forest Hills when it was constructed in the early 1970s. In fact, the high-rise (eighteen stories) building accidentally burned to the ground three or four times during that period.

The main thoroughfare is the twelve-lane-wide Queens Boulevard. Metropolitan Avenue is known for its antique shops. Forest Hills is easily accessible by subway, rail, bus and car. The commercial heart of Forest Hills is a mile-long stretch of Austin Street between Yellowstone Boulevard and Ascan Avenue: the latter thoroughfare was named in 1909 by developer Frederick Backus for his own father, Ascan Backus, II.

Forest Hills has the multiple-link 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.

Forest Hills was once the home of the U.S. Open tennis tournament. The event was held at the West Side Tennis Club before it moved to the USTA National Tennis Center in Flushing Meadows Park, about 4 miles (6.4 km) away. When the Open was played at the tennis stadium, the tournament was commonly referred to merely as Forest Hills, just as All-England Lawn Tennis Association Championships are referred to, simply, as Wimbledon. In the 2001 motion picture, The Royal Tenenbaums, Luke Wilson's character plays a tennis match at the West Side Tennis Club in Forest Hills. A pivotal scene in Alfred Hitchcock's 1951 film Strangers on a Train, in which the main character (played by Farley Granger) is a professional tennis player, features a lengthy championship game at the Club, with distinctive shots of the surrounding community.[citation needed] The Tennis Stadium, which hosted numerous music concerts including The Beatles after the U.S. Open departed for Flushing Meadows, resumed hosting music concerts during the summer of 2013 when the British rock band Mumford & Sons played there to an overflowing crowd. Stadium officials have said they will now host as many as six music or cultural events at the Stadium each season. Two monuments are erected in Forest Hills Gardens: a tribute to the victims of World War I, the "Great War"; and the mast of the Columbia, the winner of the America's Cup yacht races in both 1899 and 1901.

Forest Hills was featured as the home setting for fictional comic book character, Peter Parker, Spider-Man.[5][6]

Education[edit]

Forest Hills is served by the New York City Department of Education.

K-12 Schools[edit]

Russell Sage Junior High School

Pupils attend several public different elementary Schools, including:

Junior high students in Forest Hills attend either J.H.S. 157 Stephen A. Halsey (commonly referred to as Halsey) in Rego Park or J.H.S. 190 Russell Sage (known as Sage) in Forest Hills as well as the newest school from grade 6 to 12, M.S. 167 (otherwise known as Metropolitan Expeditionary Learning School (MELS)), "a school for a sustainable city". This school does partnership with New York City Outward Bound. New York City high school students at the turn of the 21st century began applying to the high schools of their choice, as there is no longer a zoning policy for Forest Hills High School. Students from all over New York City may apply to high schools in other parts of the city. In addition to Forest Hills High School, a large percentage of students from both J.H.S. 157 and J.H.S. 190 gain admission to other high schools in New York City. Many J.H.S. 157 students also attend the Bronx High School of Science and Brooklyn Technical High School.[7]

Traditionally many more students from J.H.S. 190 choose to study at Stuyvesant High School and Townsend Harris High School, in addition to the Bronx High School of Science.[8] Numerous students from Forest Hills also choose to attend middle and high school at the Baccalaureate School for Global Education, a public school in Astoria, which teaches grades 7 through 12 and follows the International Baccalaureate curriculum. Many of the students from outside the district accepted to attend Forest Hills High School are those who applied to either the school's Law & Humanities program, or the Carl Sagan program in accelerated math and science. FHHS began admitting students by audition to their Academy of Instructional Music and Performing Arts in 2005.[9] Famous graduates of Forest Hills High School include Jacob Lew, current US Secretary of the Treasury; Dennis Tito, the first outer space tourist; as well as many show-business stars, including musicians Burt Bacharach, Simon & Garfunkel, and The Ramones.

Catholic schools include Our Lady of Mercy and Our Lady Queen of Martyrs.[citation needed]

Colleges[edit]

Bramson ORT College is an undergraduate college operated by the American branch of the Jewish charity World ORT. Its main campus is in Forest Hills, with a satellite campus in Brooklyn. Touro College/NYSCAS has a branch location in Forest Hills.

Public libraries[edit]

The Forest Hills Library and the North Forest Park Library, operated by Queens Library, are in Forest Hills.[10][11]

Transportation[edit]

Forest Hills is served by the IND Queens Boulevard Line of the New York City Subway (E F M R trains). Stations serving Forest Hills are 67th Avenue (E M R trains), Forest Hills – 71st Avenue (E F M R trains) and 75th Avenue (E F trains). Also, the Long Island Railroad stops at its own Forest Hills station. 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).[12]

Parks and recreation[edit]

Forest Hills is bordered by two of the more sizable parks in Queens managed by the NYC Department of Parks and Recreation: the 1,255 acres (5.08 km2) Flushing Meadows–Corona Park, the site of two World's Fairs and the iconic Unisphere, and the 544 acres (2.20 km2) Forest Park. Within Forest Hills, some of the more popular parks and playgrounds include: Yellowstone Municipal Park – Katzman Playground (located on Yellowstone Blvd, between 68th Avenue and 68th Road); The Annandale Playground (located on Yellowstone Blvd, 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 St, between 76th Avenue and 76th Drive); and The Russell Sage Playground (located on 68 Ave, between Booth St and Austin St).[13]
