Hollis Hills Civic Association
Hollis Hills is predominantly an upper-middle class neighborhood located in the northeastern section of Queens.
Building began before World War II and continued through the 1950s.
With roughly 1,200 homes and its only shopping centers and restaurants
located in small clusters at 212th Street and Union Turnpike and on the corners of Union Turnpike and Springfield Boulevard, this neighborhood
has remained largely unheard of, much to the delight of its residents.
One would think it’s quiet, tree-lined streets, oversized lots, and distinctly beautiful homes would be reason enough to live here.
Surprisingly it's not the #1 attraction. School District is the primary reason that makes families choose Hollis Hills over surrounding neighborhoods.
Famed PS 188 Elementary School being ranked as one of the top elementary schools in New York City has steadily driven real estate market prices for years.
The diligent work of the Hollis Hills Civic association has preserved the tree lined neighborhood landscape, making Hollis Hills a top choice among home buyers.
Hollis Hills is bordered by Cunningham Park and Alley Pond Park, as well as the historic Long Island Motor Parkway. The parkway was built by William Kissam Vanderbilt,
a descendant of the family that presided over the New York Central Railroad and Western Union. The parkway is now part of the Brooklyn-Queens Greenway
used by bicyclers, joggers and nature trail lovers.
Notable institutions in Hollis Hills are The Chapel of the Redeemer Lutheran, The Hollis Hills Jewish Center, American Martyrs Catholic Church, the Windsor Park Branch
of the Queens Borough Public Library, the John Hamburg Community Center and P.S. 188.
