Forest Hills is a peaceful, tight-knit, and family-friendly neighborhood made up of co-ops, prewar buildings, Tudor- and Victorian-style detached homes, and a few high rises. This area is perhaps best well known for Forest Hills Gardens, a distinctive and upscale planned community. Straddling the line between suburban and urban, this neighborhood is an easy commute to midtown (only 15 minutes to Penn Station via the LIRR, or 5 stops to midtown on the E). Forest Park offers plenty of green space and boasts pole-vaulting facilities, golf courses, bocce ball courts, and bridle paths. Locals recommend Forest Hills Station House, a beloved gastropub known for their craft beers, whiskey den, and signature cocktails.
