Happy to report that in Forest Hills Queens, your reports of an open house cold front are completely untrue! Recent Sunday open houses at the co-op where I serve on the board had 100+ visitors and resulted in brisk sales….Of all the open houses I’ve been to across the city (besides new construction)- these by far had the most traffic.
