The Forest Hills Chamber of Commerce has released a 2019 guide for those looking to explore the neighborhood, shop at local businesses or learn about the area’s history.
The 40-page guidebook, released Aug. 22, features a directory of locally-owned businesses, organized by category, with everything from dentists to pet stores to tattoo parlors. The guide also contains a history of the neighborhood and a list of elected officials with their contact information.
Community organizations, schools, local law enforcement are also listed in the guidebook. It even includes places to park, fun facts and famous Forest Hills residents, such as Helen Keller, Art Garfunkel and Paul Simon.
“The Forest Hills Chamber offers the community the opportunity to network with over 150 Forest Hills based business owners and get to know the people living and working in our community,” wrote the President of the Forest Hills Chamber of Commerce Leslie Brown in the introduction to the guide.
About 150 businesses are members of the Forest Hills Chamber of Commerce.
The 2019 Forest Hills Chamber Community Guide is available online. Physical copies will be distributed on Sept. 8 at the Shop Forest Hills Fall Festival, a street fair on Austin Street between 69th Road and 72nd Road. Businesses that are members of the Chamber will also have copies of the guidebook.
