Forest Park is the name of a large city park and a section of Queens, a borough of New York City. It includes the neighborhoods of Forest Hills, a well-kept, leafy neighborhood of relatively well-to-do homeowners and immigrants from areas including the former Soviet Union and Poland; Rego Park, which has been settled in particular by immigrants from Uzbekistan and East Asia; and Kew Gardens, which is in effect a wealthy suburb, but within New York City limits. None of these neighborhoods have must-sees for tourists, but trips there for some interesting food and a walk around can be pleasant and show the traveler a different side of New York.
