This Forest Hills Private High School Has Been Named #1 In Queens, NYC

 

QUEENS NEW YORK REAL ESTATE

FOREST HILLS, QUEENS — A Forest Hills school was named the best private high school in Queens, according to a newly updated list of the best private schools in New York.

The Kew-Forest School, located on the border of Forest Hills and Kew Gardens, was ranked number 44 on Niche.com’s ranking of New York’s best private high schools for the 2021-2022 academic year. It is one of four Queens schools that earned a spot in the list’s top 100, and the only one in the borough to crack the list’s top 50.

The title is not new for many of the schools on the list, including the Kew-Forest School, which came in 39th on the school ranking site’s overall list for New York state last year.

FOREST HILLS BAGEL SHOP VOTED ONE OF THE BEST IN THE CITY!! WHERE DO YOU GET YOUR FAVORITE BAGEL??

queens ny real estate

FOREST HILLS, QUEENS — In a city that prides itself on boiling and baking, a bagel shop in Forest Hills just received a new honor: it’s among the best bagel shops citywide, according to a new list.

The 22-bagel shop list, which was published by Eater, ranks boiled and baked (never steamed!) bagels from shops across the city, as judged by the site’s staff.

Forest Hills Bagel, located at 10441 Queens Boulevard, is one of three Queens spots to make the cut, along dozens of other from the Bronx, Manhattan, and Brooklyn. No Staten Island bagel shops are on the list.

315 HOLLYWOOD AVENUE, DOUGLAS MANOR, NYC  $1,588,000 (718) .268.1045

LET’S TAKE A TOUR

For some buyers, the X factor that seals the deal is a smile from a neighbor, some great wine at a cafe or the timely arrival of blossoms.

But in Douglas Manor, a waterside slice of northeastern Queens, what gets many to “yes” is the moment when the early-evening sky turns a hue of cotton candy and peach.“The sunsets here are fantastic,” said Alexandra McMenamy, 46, who should know. Before buying in Douglas Manor last year, she would regularly drive over from her semidetached home nearby, with her husband, Brian McMenamy, 49, to catch the light show over Little Neck Bay.

The couple are residents now, but the appeal of those sunset views hasn’t faded, Ms. McMenamy said: “I will be in my pajamas and Brian will say, ‘You’ve got to come to the corner and see this!’”

Getting a closer view wasn’t easy. The couple had been scoping out Douglas Manor properties since before they married in 2014. But the narrow point of land has only about 600 houses and little turnover, with many homes remaining in the same family for generations.

International Tennis Contest Returning To The Forest Hills West Side Tennis Club This Fall

The West Side Tennis Club at Forest Hills | Forest Hills Tennis: Historic Home of the US Open

FOREST HILLS, QUEENS — A Queens tennis stadium will be South Africa’s home turf at an upcoming international tennis event.

Forest Hills’ West Side Tennis Club, which hosted the U.S. Championships — now known as the U.S. Open — from 1923-1977, will host the Davis Cup from Sept. 18-19, a best-of-five match series between South Africa and Venezuela. The event was moved from Venezuela, as the relatively unvaccinated nation struggles against a delta-variant-fueled coronavirus surge.

The stadium last hosted the Davis Cup in 1959, but Jason Weir Smith, the stadium’s director of tennis — who himself is from South Africa — hopes that Queens won’t have to wait another 62 years to host another such tournament.

In recent decades, the historic tennis club has become somewhat overshadowed by the USTA National Tennis Center in Flushing Meadows — the now home of the U.S. Open, where the Davis Cup was held in 1981.

That venue is hosting the national tennis championship the weekend before the Davis Cup, however, restoring the West Side Tennis Club as the go-to spot for the tournament.

“We could not be more excited to bring world class tennis back to the West Side Tennis Club, one of the most historic venues in American sports,” said West Side Tennis Club president Monika Jain in a news statement.

Tickets can be ordered by emailing RWalker@NewChapterMedia.com, according to the event site, but pricing information is not available online. Davis Cup representatives did not immediately respond to Patch’s inquiry about how much tickets cost.

The event will kick off at 11 a.m. on Sept. 18 with two best-of-three-set singles matches. The second day, also starting at 11 a.m., will feature the reverse two best-of-three-set singles matches and a best-of-three-set doubles match.

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.
