Unveiling Our Flyer: Please Volunteer & Distribute

 Extra! Extra! Rego-Forest Preservation Council has just released its promotional flyer...

The flyer encompasses our mission statement, links to our Rego-Forest Preservation Council Blog and self-titled Facebook Group, and a link to distinctive and historic neighborhood photos and memorabilia on Rego-Forest Preservation Council's Flickr It also explains how the public can support the preservation of Rego Park, Forest Hills, and Queens at large.

We are seeking support from community and citywide residents, preservation and cultural organizations, property owners, architects, urban planners, conservationists, and more. You name it! Let's bring the teamwork back into the neighborhood, and subtract greed which would culminate in insensitive alterations and the demolition of site & district "landmarks at heart," and would also result in the elimination of our precious green spaces and trees, if we don't "fight the good fight" in a proactive manner.

Please download the flyer by clicking on the photo, contact Chairman Michael Perlman at, provide copies to your family and friends, bring it to your board meetings and events, and please don't hesitate to invite us.

The images on our flyer (left to right) represents a fraction of the types of individual buildings and sometimes surrounding neighborhood districts that merit preservation:

1. Sutton Hall, 109-14 Ascan Ave, Forest Hills
2. Midway Theatre, 108-22 Queens Blvd, Forest Hills
3. Earliest apartment houses on Saunders St between 63rd Dr & Elliot Ave, Rego Park
