Meet Our Newest Team Member.. David Cornejo!

The Forest Hills  community has undoubtedly influenced and impacted the course of my life. Since moving to the Forest Hills Gardens in 1998, I have built and fostered relationships with many members of the local community. My family has been engaged with the Forest Hills community since 1990 with the establishment of our family business, 5 Burro Cafe – a local Mexican restaurant.  Through my years of working at the restaurant with my family, I have truly come to understand the importance of community, philanthropy, and getting the job done with integrity.

In 2013, I attended Michigan State University and was a student in their Eli Broad School of Business. Although my visits back home were seldom, being back in the community was comforting and a great reminder as to how fortunate I was to grow up in such a beautiful community. MSU provided me with an incredible education, and an even more profound network. To this day, I continuedly communicate with former peers and friends, and contribute annually to my Program as an alumnus. Living in the Midwest for that period of time made me greatly appreciate my roots in New York and specifically Forest Hills. The wide range of cultures, cuisines, and architecture is unmatched.

Since graduating in 2017, I have made it a priority to travel around the world and enjoy all that life has to offer. I competitively trained Brazilian Jiu Jitsu in San Diego, California, from 2017-2019 while at the same time working for the US Navy. In 2019, I took the trip of a lifetime to South America, to immerse myself in a culture that I was part of , however, I had known nothing about. For 4 months I bounced around South America, beginning in Argentina, visiting family in Chile, then making my way to Uruguay, Peru, and ultimately Brazil. To me, nothing is more rewarding than learning about different cultures and viewing how other people live their lives. I am so fortunate to have been raised by a culturally diverse family- my mother, a Jewish second generation New Yorker, and my father a Chilean born immigrant, with a dream of coming to New York to make a life for himself and his family.

Finally, this experience and diversity has allowed me interact with people from all around the world. I now speak 3 languages conversationally – English, Spanish, and Hebrew. Also, my time spent in Brazil has ignited a desire in me to learn Portuguese, so I have been practicing since my return. Some

of my favorite hobbies include, eating delicious meals, staying physically active through sports and martial arts, listening to podcasts, and laughing with friends and family.

Ben’s Best Deli may have sliced its last pastrami in 2018 — after a 73-year run — but Rego Park maintains its reputation as a destination for Jewish fare. These days, the central-Queens neighborhood is known for kosher kebab parlors and foods beloved by the Bukharan Jews who began immigrating here from Uzbekistan 25 years ago. One subway stop away lies Forest Hills, which on its suburban-esque surface appears to be lacking in the culinary department. Dig deeper, though, and find a scene almost as diverse as Queens itself, with commendable sources of old-school pizza, Israeli shawarma, Peruvian ceviche, and Chinese hand-pulled noodles. Herewith, the absolute best places to eat in Rego Park and Forest Hills, neighboring communities at the easternmost terminus of the R train. Continue Reading ›

Here’s Where NYC Millennials Can Actually Afford To Buy Homes

queens new york real estate

NEW YORK — With home prices in many areas topping $1 million, buying property in New York City can often seem out of reach. But a handful of neighborhoods are havens of affordability for millennials and other first-time home-buyers, a new StreetEasy report says.

The real-estate website identified the city’s 10 best neighborhoods for New Yorkers who are buying their first home. StreetEasy looked for properties that would be affordable to 25-to-44-year-olds making the median annual income of $70,406.

Forest Hills is the friendliest to first-time buyers, StreetEasy found. Some 414 apartments were on the market there in 2018 that fell within the site’s monthly spending range, which topped out at $2,347. That figure accounts for a 20 percent down payment plus taxes, maintenance and common charges, StreetEasy says. Continue Reading ›
