The West Side Tennis Club, the spiritual and historical home of the US Open and a great place to meet community members, is less than quarter of a mile away. Forest Hills Gardens is a vibrant neighborhood with active volunteer organizations and a great spirit of community.

This home is a short distance to the LIRR in Station Square and E, F, M and R trains at the 71st/Continental subway stop and near dining, shopping and other services in the heart of Forest Hills on Austin Street and Queens Blvd.
