Forest Hills’ old-school ice cream parlor first opened its doors in 1925 and has been in operation as Eddie’s Sweet Shop since 1967. The family-owned restaurant purposely evokes the past, with expertly maintained pressed tin ceilings, antique cash registers, polished marble counters and cast-iron swivel stools to sit on while you order up a dish of one of the shop’s nearly 20 homemade ice cream flavors.

Things to Do Take a Tour: Forest Hills

Just about nine miles due east of Times Square lies the comparatively arcadian NYC neighborhood of Forest Hills, Queens. Nowadays this hamlet, named for its "knob and kettle" hill terrain, feels mercifully unplugged from Manhattan's amps. But around the corner, Austin Street is a hive of eclectic newcomers, from the Japanese grocer Sakura Ya the beloved Tex-Mex-style 5 Burro Cafe. From here, the World's Fair grounds are a hop and a skip away, as is the USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center in Flushing Meadows–Corona Park. At day's end, Danny Brown Wine Bar & Kitchen, on Metropolitan, offers a sophisticated American bistro experience.
