Forest Hills is a borough of Queens , one of the five boroughs of New York . Forest Hills is bounded to the north by Rego Park, to the east by Flushing Meadows Corona Park , and to the south by Forest Park. It is close to New York's JFK International and LaGuardia airports.

From 1914 to 1977 the American tennis championships were held in Forest Hills, first on grass, then later on hard court. Forest Hills was a synonym for the US Open at the time, just as Wimbledon is for the English tennis championships. In 1978 the location of the US Open was relocated to Flushing Meadows .
