Hi -
I am looking to move into the area and want some advice on which luxury hi-rise condos are best. I have heard that the Park Lane and Windsor are great - are they any others that anyone would recommed?
Does anyone live in either the Park Lane or Windsor?

On the chance that you haven't been to the website devoted to Forest Hills, here it is:

It's not a substitute for this site, it's a supplement.


If view happens to be important to you, I know all the views in that area, and the situation is tricky. One example: you can be sold on a view of the Flushing Meadows lakes -- and technically, you have the view -- but you're so high up that all you really see is beyond them: industrial Flushing and LaGuardia Airport. On a lower floor you may actually have the lakes in front of you, but the realtor probably won't tell you that. (More profit on a higher floor.)
