The Friends of Station Square, a community-based organization, entered into a public-private partnership to restore the historic landscape of Station Square, considered the heart of Forest Hills. The station building is listed on the National Register of Historic Places, and the original landscape design was completed in 1910 by the Olmsted Brothers.

 

The building was reconstructed by the Long Island Railroad (LIRR). Based on detailed research, a review of the original planting concept, and close coordination with LIRR, MNLA's plan was enthusiastically endorsed by the Forest Hills community, which raised the funding to complete the landscape restoration.
