Forest Hills Holiday Lights Will Shine On !

The annual holiday lights are back on Austin Street and Continental Avenue.

FOREST HILLS, QUEENS — The holiday lights that decorate a busy commercial strip of Forest Hills each winter are back.

Holiday lights are now setting Austin Street and Continental Avenue aglow, a week earlier than planned, according to Forest Hills Chamber of Commerce President Leslie Brown.

The Forest Hills Property Group, Cord Meyer Development Company, Ridgewood Savings Bank, Crescent Properties and an anonymous restaurant owner all chipped in nearly $10,000 combined to keep the lights on, according to Brown.

“It is so important to have some shining lights in Forest Hills to support our local businesses and to be a symbol of hope during the pandemic,” Brown said in a prepared statement.

In 2017, the Forest Hills Chamber of Commerce was unable to raise the thousands of dollars needed to fund the holiday display.

It had threatened to be the first winter in more than two decades that Austin Street would have no holiday lights, DNAinfo reported at the time.

Concert promoters at the Forest Hills Stadium picked up the tab that year and the winter after that, according to the Forest Hills Post.

Last year’s lights were supported by concert production group Madison House Presents, also through the Forest Hills Stadium, and City Council Member Karen Koslowitz.
