Taking up only 2.6 square miles, one would think the Forest Hills neighborhood in the borough of Queens is only known for its forests and hills. This isn't the case though, as the neighborhood has a lot of ties to pop culture. It is the home of Spider-man in the comics, was in a scene from Alfred Hitchcock's Strangers on a Train, and was once home to a U.S. Open tennis tournament. 

While these facts are fun and make for excellent trivia questions, dog owners will love the fact that the neighborhood has a public dog park even more. The park is called Underbridge Dog Run, and yes, it is under a bridge. It features two separate areas, a larger one and smaller one for differently sized dogs. Both sections come coplete with double gated fences for extra safety, and clean-up stations, but be sure to bring your own water.

The city has plenty of other dog-friendly options, like Yellowstone Park, the Barrier Playground, and the Real Good Park, for those extra good boys. Also, with 3 different animal hospitals, every dog-lover can be sure that their pup will be healthy and happy in Forest Hills.
