Welcome to Forest Hills
A quiet and affluent community with beautiful architecture and walkable shops
Forest Hills, New York, is one of the most iconic neighborhoods in New York. It’s where the Super Bowl was held for many years, the movie Fame was filmed, and where many celebrities reside. Forest Hills is one of the most affluent neighborhoods in the city and is known for its tree-lined streets, expansive parks, and incredible architecture.
The neighborhood is famous for its many homes built in the style known as Forest Hills Bungalow or FHB. These homes are characterized by their rounded corners, steeply pitched roofs, and large windows. Architects like George Oliver and Henry Chapman, who designed homes in Forest Hills, popularized the style of architecture in the community.
