"Forest Hills (but not really)"

Yellowstone Blvd is a strange thoroughfare. On the end towards the Woodhaven Blvd split, it has your typical gritty major intersection vibe, and on the north end by Austin Street/Queens Blvd, it is busy and bustling with cars and tons of apartment buildings. In the middle however, Yellowstone Blvd offers about 5 consecutive tree lined blocks of detached homes - a rare sight in the city, but very common in this part of Forest Hills, Queens. While Yellowstone does form the northwestern boundary of Forest Hills, the street as a whole is somewhat removed from the community and vibe of that neighborhood. The core of Forest Hills (along Austin Street) is certainly accessible by foot within 10-15 minutes depending on what end of Yellowstone you live on, but you still feel that you are on the perimeter of the area and not a part of the neighborhood. Train options can be very limited depending on what end of the street you live on. The south terminus by Woodhaven Blvd for example, is quite a haul from the nearest subway. If you live on the north end by Austin St., you are about 10 minutes from the 71st Ave EFRV stop or the LIRR Forest Hills stop. If you have a car, the semi urban remoteness of this street probably won't bother you that much, but if you don't, plan on getting fed up pretty quickly as the immediate area offers very little in terms of amenities.
