Welcome to my blog

I know there have been a lot of different blogs about Forest Hills, NY over the years, but I thought I’d throw my two cents in with my own take on our interesting neighborhood.

Given where it’s situated, almost the border of New York City and Long Island, Forest Hills is really unlike any other place – a mix of the urban and the suburban. On one hand, it may seem like it’s the last touch of New York City before suburban Long Island takes over. On the other, it feels like suburbia is the dominant culture in Forest Hills, with bits of New York City trying to punch its way through.

Whichever of these interpretations you agree with, it’s definitely true that Forest Hills is constantly changing. As the city and the suburban vie with each other within this eastern part of New York City, the results are an interesting blend of city and suburb. This blog will explore this neighborhood as it continues to evolve.

    I think you need to look at a map. FH is not even NEAR the eastern border of Queens. Go about 8 miles EAST on the Grand Central and voila — Nassau County. Good luck with the blog though.

      I know… I happen to love maps and look at them all the time. It’s not meant to be taken so literally. Read my first comment again and you will see what I mean by “Edge of the City”. And thanks for the good luck!

    Ah, gotcha! A bit of poetic license so to speak. I am a regular poster on Queens Central btw; different screen name for a new site!
