I lived in Forest Hills when I was in high school and it's a great neighborhood. I moved to Forest Hills when I got accepted to Forest Hills High School, and the neighborhood made quite an impression on me since then. It's a quiet neighborhood with lots of trees and nice houses. I love the trees, the hills, the houses, the schools and the shopping. If you are a family man looking to buy a house, Forest Hills is a great choice. Even though the houses are pricey, they have wonderful houses with good schools. Unlike the New Yorkers, the community is friendly and helpful so you don't have to be shy to ask for directions. Forest Hills is close to a major road and the highways so it's easy to get in and out of the neighborhood. Most people choose to live in Forest Hills for the commute because the highways and the subways are very accessible. Other people like to go there for the shopping because there is a large shopping mall half mile away from Forest Hills. Queens Center used to be a small shopping center with limited number of stores at one time. But since they renovated the mall several years ago, there are dozens of stores to choose from. There are great restaurants to dine in and you can choose from American to Mediterranean cuisine. But if you are going to Forest Hills just for a visit, leave your car at home. Parking is a pain because there are a lot of apartment buildings in Forest Hills. Even with apartments with garage parking, there is always a long waiting list. So unless you live in a private house you have to depend on street parking, which is very hard to find. But some people think it's worth living in Forest Hills, because it's a nice, safe and quiet place to live with a good commute. I liked living there for the shopping and the bowling.
