In the early part of the 20th century, Kew Gardens Hills was still a part of Queens Valley when golf courses followed by houses came up on the wavy and elevated tracts of land. It had been used for horticulture and farms in the preceding century. The local civic association which was founded in 1941 has served all Kew Gardens Hills residents by urging on their behalf with government and other public service providers. Public safety, sanitation, the infrastructure, streets and roads, libraries, parks and playgrounds are some the keystones of the association’s efforts as KGHCA strives to guarantee the quality of life that makes Kew Gardens Hills a prime Queens residential neighborhood.
