The neighborhood of Bellevue is part of the city of Schenectady, New York.
The character of Bellevue is exemplified by its slower-paced ambience. There are a few green spaces close by for residents to visit, including Hillhurst Park, and they are very well-spread out, making it easy to reach them. This area is also good for those who prefer a quiet atmosphere, as there tend to be low levels of noise from traffic - however some parts can be quite loud, especially near one of the railway lines.
In Bellevue, about 45% of the dwellings are single detached homes, whereas the rest are mainly small apartment buildings and duplexes. A majority of the housing growth in this part of Schenectady took place prior to the 1960s. This neighborhood has a good selection of housing sizes, ranging from lofts to four or more bedrooms. Around two thirds of the properties in the neighborhood are occupied by home owners while renters occupy the remainder.
The nearest grocery store in Bellevue is usually only a rather short walk away. There are also a limited number of options for those who cherish nearby restaurants and cafes. When it comes to education, it is a rather short walk to access primary schools from anywhere in Bellevue. In contrast, there are no high schools in this part of the city.
The best method of transportation in this area is very often a car. Coming across a parking spot is generally easy, and many real estate listings are a rather short drive from the nearest highway, such as Interstate 890. However, Bellevue is not an especially convenient part of Schenectady for getting around by public transit. Nevertheless, property owners have access to a few bus lines, and bus stops are not very far-removed from most homes. Walking in Bellevue is not very popular, despite the fact that running daily errands is easy.
