The neighborhood is roughly a mile long by half a mile wide, bounded on the east by Brook Road, on the west by Hermitage Road, on the north by Westbrook Avenue and on the south by West Laburnum Avenue. There are stoplights at all four corners, and at each end of Bellevue Avenue, which bisects the neighborhood half way between Laburnum and Westbrook. There are no stoplights within the neighborhood.

We have two small commercial districts; the smaller of the two is located on the south side of the 1200 block of Bellevue Avenue and a larger one on both sides of the 4000 block of MacArthur Avenue. The Bellevue neighborhood is composed of about 1200 single-family residential homes, with a few duplexes.
