That is a hard question to answer. Each area has it's benefits. Of course being a Forest Hills resident and broker for over 40 years, I'm partial to Forest Hills. It has a great community, some of the top schools in N.Y.C and very convenient in that you can walk to most anything, and public transportation abounds. The best way to make a decision is to check out the areas for yourself.
When you are ready to look, please feel free to call me and I can set up some properties for you to look at.
