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.learn more about this neighborhood

The entire first and second floors of this two-story home are available for rent, with a single-car garage behind the home and a private outdoor space. If you are a driver utilizing the single-car garage, you will be welcomed home by entering first through the sun room, which leads directly into the newly-upgraded kitchen and the rest of the home. The sun room is not currently pictured, as it is undergoing renovation. It is the perfect home addition for reflection and relaxation while remaining shielded from the elements, and serves as a great "mud room" for days when inclement weather strikes.
If you are entering the home's front door from Burns Street, the grand scale of the living room will let you know what to expect from the rest of the house. The open and airy layout of the home is immediately apparent, and is a gracious welcome for both you and your guests. This home's layout is ideal for hosting guests and entertaining.
The first floor features plank hardwood flooring in the living room and dining room, a half bath, large double-paned windows, plenty of light, and a kitchen just-upgraded to include a large stainless gas range and dishwasher. The sun room is located on the first floor, off of the kitchen, and will have new flooring within the week. Additionally, three walls of the sun room feature double-paned, floor-to-ceiling windows.
A handsome wooden staircase leads you up to the second floor of the home, where you will find a newly renovated full bathroom, and three bedrooms. All areas except for the bathroom on this level are plank hardwood, and match the first floor's coloring.
All three bedrooms are amply proportioned, and all bedrooms include one large closet. A linen closet can be found in the second floor's hallway. The living room has a double-width coat closet as well, and the dining room features in-wall storage spaces for easy access to dinnerware - or perhaps for display of art or Fine China.
Available as soon as the simple renovations are complete (slated to be completed for a 3/1/2013 availability), this home is a great option; only moments to public transit - while also including access to the private garage. Very close to retail shopping centers, restaurants, and grocery stores - tucked away on a quiet, tree-lined block.
A lovely historic street, grandly-scaled spaces, tons of light, and original features such as oak-framed windows and crystal doorknobs all lend way to this feeling like a true home.
