Bellerose is a neighborhood on the eastern edge of the New York City borough of Queens, along 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. The area first became developed in 1910 with the placement of the Bellerose Long Island Rail Road station, which is no longer one of the primary means of public transportation for the neighborhood since the station is no longer operational. 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 single-family homes with a mostly Irish American, Italian American, German American, and Indian American working and middle class population. The area is also home to the Queens County Farm Museum, which houses an array of farm animals and antique farming equipment. It is also home to St. Gregory the Great Church and School, which hosts a 10-day long festival each June, an event that is known throughout Queens and Western Nassau. The Parish's school and church are now divided by the Cross Island Parkway, and a tunnel was created to run under the Parkway to allow access between facilities.
