Forest Hills was settled in the mid 1600´s and was known as Whitepot. English settlers bought the land from Native Americans for three white clay pots and the name stuck. The present history of Forest Hills was begun in 1906 when successful businessman Cord Meyer purchased 600 acres of farmland in Whitepot. Meyer re-named the area Forest Hills in deference to nearby Forest Park and because the area was the highest point for miles around.

Forest Hills, an ethnically diverse area, is composed of young families as well as a large senior population. 

Forest Hills always entertaining, boasts a vibrant business community offering upscale shopping, fine restaurants, lively nightlife and pubs. Explore Austin Street and Continental Ave where you will find 200 one of a kind shops. The Forest Hills merchants have a motto that they are proud of "We are large enough to serve you and small enough to know you", so join us for your next shopping spree!

Forest Hills was as famous for the U.S. Open as England is for Wimbledon. The U.S. Open was held here for more than 70 years until 1978 when it moved to the larger National Tennis Center in Flushing. The Westside Tennis Club is still a prestigious tennis club today, located within the Forest Hills Gardens.
