From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Bellerose, better known as Bellerose Manor, is a neighborhood on the eastern edge of the New York City borough of Queens, near the border with Nassau County. It is sometimes referred to as Bellerose Manor, to distinguish it from the adjacent Bellerose Village and Bellerose Terrace in Nassau[1]. The neighborhood is part of Queens Community Board 13.[2] The northern edge of Bellerose is separated from the Nassau border by the neighborhood of Floral Park, Queens to the east.

In addition, residents can catch express buses directly to the city, or city buses to the subway, on Hillside Avenue, Jamaica Avenue, or Union Turnpike the three major arteries that run through the town's limits.

Today, the neighborhood is comprised predominantly of detached houses with a mostly Irish-American, German-American, Indian-American and working and middle class population.

While the northeastern section of Queens Village is commonly referred to as part of Bellerose, it is also called Bellerose Manor and is recognized by the USPS as an "acceptable alternate" town name. The zip code of Bellerose is 11426.
