The 1st residential rowhouses in the newly named Forest Hills in 1906 by Cord Meyer, are on Roman Ave now 72nd Ave between Austin St and Queens Blvd. They are the oldest extant developments in Forest Hills. Prior to 1906, Forest Hills was known as Whitepot and solely consisted of farmland. This assemblage is unique for Forest Hills, and particularly Queens. The 72nd Ave rowhouses were honored in 1991 and 2006 by the Central Queens Historical Association, and a plaque was mounted on one establishment. They coincide with Forest Hills' 100th anniversary in 2006. They are the pride of Forest Hills, and can and should be restored and adaptively reused."
