Neighborhood Description

Forest Hills is the “hip” neighborhood stuck on the wrong side of Queens. Like LIC (Long Island City) and Astoria, Forest Hills has always been a popular hotspot for young professionals looking for a vibrant nightlife outside of Manhattan, but unlike LIC and Astoria, Forest Hills is closer to Long Island than it is to the city. Decisions, decisions…

Forest Hills is an upper middle class neighborhood with a lot of character. Different parts of neighboring ‘hoods rub off on Forest Hills, which combines the classiness of Long Island with the laid-back feel of Kew Gardens, but still enjoys a lot of the diversity that eastern Queens is famous for. There are a ton of parks nearby (if Flushing Meadows and the US Open weren’t enough), which may explain why it’s such an alluring neighborhood for wealthier families and outdoorsy young professionals, too.

It should be noted that Forest Hills feels like two distinct neighborhoods - there’s the fence and lawn Forest Hills Gardens private community, which was named “Best Community” in 2007 by Cottage Living Magazine. Forest Hills Gardens is home to some of the wealthiest families in Queens and some of the most expensive properties in Queens County (the emblematic Station Square is certainly worth visiting). Yet literally on the next block from Station Square there’s Austin Street, the shopping and nightlife hub, which looks and feels like an entirely different neighborhood. Austin Street has everything from a Barnes and Noble to a Jewish community center to a post office, with all the pubs, restaurants, and hole-in-the-wall shopping spots you could ask for. 5 public schools are available, as well as reputable Forest Hills High School and Russell Sage Junior High School. Forest Hills Library and North Forest Park Library are also only a few minutes away from the main hub at Austin Street.

Commuting in Forest Hills couldn’t be easier. The neighborhood happens to be wedged between Flushing Meadows Park to the east, the Long Island Expressway to the north, Queens Boulevard to the west (its practically next to Austin Street), and Jackie Robinson Parkway to the south, which makes it a very convenient location for drivers looking to have easy access to Manhattan, Brooklyn, and Long Island. The Forest Hills subway stop at 71st Avenue is a major stop for the E, F, M, and R trains, while the F train runs to 75th Avenue. The LIRR stops in Forest Hills as well. Buses that serve Forest Hills include the Q23, Q60, Q64, QM4, QM11, QM12, and QM18.

Forest Hills rentals start at $1,250 for studios and $1,500 for one bedrooms, although pricier parts of the neighborhood can go up to $2,700 for one bedrooms and $1,600 for studios. Expect to pay anywhere from $1,800 to $4,000 for two bedrooms.
