Forest Hills is situated in Queens, New York. Residents love that this community has the benefit of being a quiet, suburban-like neighborhood with all the benefits of an urban location and all the services and shops they need. Forest Hills is very much like a small village located right in New York. Main thoroughfares have many shops and services, including specialty shops such as a pet supply store and a veterinary hospital for pet owners in the area. The weather for enjoying the neighborhood on foot can be wet and cold in the winter, so you may need to consider warm outerwear and an umbrella on some outings. Summers tend to be much warmer and humid. In spring, pedestrians enjoy trees covered in blossoms and in the fall, the leaves turning to autumn colors that provide a beautiful backdrop for pedestrians who enjoy walking the neighborhood with their dogs.

Large parks border this neighborhood to the east and south, which provide plenty of green vistas and give the entire region a park-like feel. Many of the homes in the area have unique architecture not typical in most urban or suburban settings. Forest Hills is a very beautiful neighborhood for walking with lots of original buildings to see, shops to access, and parks to enjoy.
