Bellerose Real Estate

Picture of Bellerose

At the easternmost edge of New York City, Eastern Queens is the kind of subway-free suburban haven of leafy streets and parks more often associated with neighboring Nassau County, Long Island. The Queens/Nassau border is referred to locally as "the city line." What is now Nassau County was previously part of Queens County—a handful of border neighborhoods even have Nassau County counterparts with the same names. Except for street names, the transition between Nassau and Queens counties is seamless. One big difference: Taxes are about half as much in Queens. In addition to the area's parks and playgrounds, highlights are the the Queens County Farm Museum in Floral Park, which re-creates the county's historic agricultural phase, complete with farm animals and antique farming equipment—and whose records of farm ownership date back to 1697—and Preller Field, a nine-field Little League complex.

Bellerose, a sweet-spot neighborhood between suburb and city—also known as Bellerose Manor—shares its name with neighborhoods across the Nassau County border, where taxes are higher. A popular family neighborhood, Bellerose, like its neighbors along the eastern Queens-Nassau County border, is known for outstanding schools, tree-lined suburban streets, several parks and playgrounds and a strong sense of community. Yet a New York City diversity is still evident in the shops and restaurants that line Hillside and Braddock Avenues.

There are no subway stations in Bellerose, but there is an express bus to Manhattan and the Long Island Rail Road stops at Bellerose station. Bellerose has the Cross Island Parkway, and the Grand Central Parkway, Long Island Expressway and Southern State Parkway are nearby.
