Forest Hills South 75th AnniversaryAs the sun set over Forest Hills South on July 18, nearly 360 residents and 30 staff members participated in a 75th anniversary celebration of their seven-building apartment complex.

A garden party featuring a barbecue buffet, four commemorative cakes bearing historic and recent property images, live rock and pop music by The Kitchen, and speeches by longtime residents.

Among the special guests was Dara Birnbaum, daughter of the development’s award-winning architect, the late Philip Birnbaum. The celebration reinforced neighborliness, a testament to the historic community’s existence.

Coinciding with the nearby 1939–1940 World’s Fair at Flushing Meadows-Corona Park, a growing Queens population was welcomed to Forest Hills South between 1939 and 1941, 604 apartments north of Queens Boulevard between 76th Drive and 78th Avenue.

On Saturday, residents expressed their pride in The Parkview, Meadowbrook, Beaverbrook, Girard, Dover, Dartmouth, and The Marlborough, which are stately Georgian Colonial buildings overlooking a park-like setting.
