Forest Hills has many pre-war buildings and keep in mind post-war refers to any building built after 1947. That said, most buildings in FH have some age to them. You would think that there might be a new designation for newer buildings since we are in a new millenium, but no.
If you're thinking Condo, they are great investment vehicles but they will outprice a similarly sized Coop by more than $100K. There are also very few Condos in Forest Hills.
What you're left with here is the North or South side on QB. The best way to gauge which would be better for you would be to get out there, walk the streets and get a feel for the area. After that, you can make an informed decision. Be aware that prices will spike upward in proximity to the 71st/Continental Ave Express stop. Good luck.

As far as north or south of Queens Blvd., I think it's really east or west, and I don't think it makes that much difference, although obviously there are more buildings that are closer to the rr when you are west of Queens Blvd.
East of Queens Blvd. there are plenty of building on 108th Street or Yellowstone, and they are in all kinds of price ranges, depending on ammenities. If you want to try to figure out what price range you need to stay in, feel free to contact me and I will pre-qualify you.
