Historic Forest Hills Gardens Station Square To Be Renovated

The Forest Hills Gardens Corporation announced the long-awaited restoration of Station Square. This will be a multi-faceted project with many phases and involving more than just the restoration of the historic road surface. All the public utilities will also be upgraded, including their infrastructure, once the roadway is opened. 

Because of the logistics of a project of this size and to maintain safety at all times, the entire square east of Continental Avenue will be closed to all vehicular and pedestrian traffic for the entirety of the project. 

The Station Square Restoration Project is slated to begin in the middle of April and should last for the remainder of 2018.  The sidewalks around the square will remain open. However the majority of the square will be fenced in and totally closed.

The Gardens Corporation said they understand that this will be an inconvenience to the community and its surroundings, but after careful deliberation it was decided there was no other way to safely proceed with this project if the square was not closed to the public. Forest Hills Gardens Corporation said they are counting on everyone’s understanding, patience and support throughout this process. The board and homeowners acknowledged and thanked Assembly Member Andrew Hevesi for securing the funding for this unique project through a grant. They said Hevesi’s commitment to this historic area has been a benefit to the community.
