There’s no getting around it: Forest Hills Gardens is a big attraction and often the thing that comes to mind when people think “Forest Hills.” (Right after, “Isn’t that where they play the U.S. Open?”).

That said, it’s our turn to be the focus of a tour through the Municipal Art Society of New York:

Forest Hills: Garden City in the City

Sunday, June 29, 2:00 p.m.
Recently ranked the no. 1 “cottage community” in the U.S. by Cottage Living magazine, Forest Hills Gardens exemplifies the “garden city” planning that Jane Jacobs criticized. But are there also Jacobsean virtues to greater Forest Hills? Leader: Francis Morrone, architectural historian. Meet at the underpass for the LIRR station, two blocks north of 71st St./Continental subway station. (Transit: LIRR from Penn Station or E, F, R, or G train to Forest Hills.)
