About Kew Gardens Hills, NY
Kew Garden can be as delightfully charming as the name portrays. Named after the beautiful botanical gardens in England, the area was developed at the turn of the century to maintain a genteel, garden suburb. And, despite the pressure (because of its proximity to a number of highways and subway lines,) community associations have fought hard to keep it as close to its original concept as possible. The whole philosophy of Kew Gardens’ builders—like that of Olmstead and Vaux—was that, by being surrounded by green; you would be renewed once you came home from the city.
