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. Theres 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 couldnt 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.
