Have You Made Your Reservations Yet?? NYC Restaurant Week Starts Monday Including 7 Yummy Spots In Forest Hills!

NYC Restaurant Week

FOREST HILLS, QUEENS — New York Restaurant Week is making a “super” return this month, the mayor announced on Monday, and a handful of eateries in Forest Hills have already signed up for the deal-filled event.

After a takeout-only run earlier this year, this summer’s five-week-long Restaurant Week will return in-person on July 19, and reservations are already open at 505 citywide eateries — including 7 spots in Forest Hills.

Although some Forest Hills eateries are represented in this year’s event, the vast majority of participating restaurants — 413 of the 505 — are found in Manhattan, with just 31 Queens spots on the list so far, though others might join ahead of the July 15 registration deadline.

Here are the Forest Hills restaurants participating so far:

For participating restaurants, this year’s deals include $21 lunches, $39 dinners, and a new $125 “Signature Dining Experience,” which includes three or more courses.

 There will be even more deals for MasterCard holders, who will receive $10 of credit on each purchase of $39 or more, and who will be entered for the chance to win 200,000 airline miles with each NYC Restaurant Week meal.

“This is going to be amazing,” de Blasio said on Monday, describing this year’s event as “a wonderful, super restaurant week.”
The participating eateries include more than 40 types of cuisines in 75 neighborhoods, according to organizers NYC & Company.

The return of restaurant week comes as New York City continues its campaign to restart tourism in the city, which flagged during the coronavirus pandemic. Both the mayor and organizers said the extended restaurant week will add to the effort.

“Accompanied with vibrant open streets and rich cultural activity returning across the five boroughs, the options this summer are endless and the time to visit is now,” NYC & Company President Fred Dixon said.

Number Of Residents Who Left Forest Hills Has Doubled In 2020: Study

forest hills queens nyc real estate

Over 150,000 people moved out of Queens in 2020, a 10 percent increase from the year before

FOREST HILLS, QUEENS — Nearly two times the amount of people moved out of Forest Hills in 2020 compared to 2019, according to a new study by the global real estate firm CBRE.

The study, which looked at 29 million change-of-address requests filed with the U.S. Postal Service last year provided ZIP code-based insights into which neighborhoods across the country saw the most people leave — and where those residents relocated to.

New York City was already shrinking before 2020, and once it became a national epicenter of the pandemic residents began to flee in droves — more people moved out of New York City than almost any other city in the U.S. last year, second only to San Francisco, the study found.

Many of those who moved headed to Sun Belt cities like Austin and Charlotte, which gained new residents according to the study.

Over 150,000 people moved out of Queens in 2020, a 10 percent increase from the year before, the study found. (However, the study doesn’t include ZIP codes with fewer than 10,000 individuals, so data is missing from some of the borough’s neighborhoods.)

A Guide On How To Keep Your Family And Home Safe This Winter Season

Holiday Winter Tips to Keep Your Family Safe and Warm - MomRN

Winter has officially arrived — which means frigid temperatures and snowstorms are in store for a majority of the country. While there are some positives that go along with the harsh weather, like snow days and cozying up to the fireplace, it’s important to be prepared and protect yourself, your family and your home in case of a winter weather-related emergency.

Here are some practical tips and recommendations you should know when a winter storm strikes.


1. Be prepared for a power outage and know how to use generators safely.

In the event of a winter storm, power outages are a likely possibility, especially when the snow is heavy or there’s ice in the forecast. Having a generator on hand will provide backup power to your home in case there’s a power outage. However, some safety rules must be abided by when using a generator. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommends the following:

  • Never use a generator inside your home, in basements, in garages or near windows.
  • Generators should be located at least 20 feet from any window, door or vent and in a space where rain and snow will not be able to reach them.
  • Do not use the generator or appliances if they are wet.
  • Do not store gasoline indoors where the fumes from the generator could ignite.
  • Plug in appliances to the generator using individual heavy-duty, outdoor-rated extension cords.

While it’s clear that you should never use a generator indoors, it’s still important to have at least one working carbon monoxide detector on every level of your home to ensure that your generator isn’t spreading any dangerous fumes. This carbon monoxide detector by Kidde is also a smoke detector and provides protection even during power outages when many fire and carbon monoxide incidents can occur.

2. Heat your home safely.

If you’re using a space heater to help heat your home when it’s cold, you’ll have to be extra cautious. According to the Electrical Safety Foundation International, it’s important to read the manufacturer’s instructions and warning labels carefully before using any space heater. You should also inspect heaters regularly and discontinue use if you find loose connections or cracked or broken plugs. And, of course, keep in mind that a space heater should never be left unattended.

When choosing a space heater, opt for one that has A-plus safety ratings and features an automatic shut-off. This space heater from TaoTronics has built-in overheating and tip-over protection sensors, as well as a 12-hour timer, that work together to provide a much safer heating source. It’s also compact and ideal for heating an entire room such as a bedroom or office.
