In the first decade of the 20th century, renowned architect and urban planner Grosvenor Atterbury and landscape architect Frederick Law Olmsted Jr.-son and partner of Frederick Law Olmsted, the landscape architect who co-designed Central Park-received a commission to plan a new town on a 140-acre, leafy swath of Queens County. Over the intervening century, Forest Hills Gardens, their masterpiece, has remained one of Americas best-preserved planned communities, retaining much of its idyllic nature.
This fairy-tale village of sloping, curved streets contains four parks just for residents and their guests. Inspired by Englands storied Garden Cities Movement, Forest Hills Gardens put in place a covenant limiting industry in order to preserve the idea of country living in the city and create a lasting residential haven. Atterburys love of the Tudor style gave the community the aesthetic that still defines it today. Elegant Tudor-style homes abound. There are towers, spires, Norman-style turrets, fancy brickwork, exposed half-timbers, red-tiled gabled roofs, and mullioned windows everywhere.
