Forest Hills Garden

If you’re in New York City and want to experience it like the locals, go visit Forest Hills Gardens.

Dating back to 1909, Forest Hills Gardens was designed by architect Grosvenor Atterbury (whose resume includes several works that are probably great but none of which I’d ever heard of) and landscape architect Frederick Law Olmsted Jr. (whose resume includes Central Park and the grounds of the 1893 World’s Fair…both sort of big deals).

Check out the gallery of images. You’d never expect to find this place situated in heart of Queens.
