2. An affluent, upper-class suburb of Seattle, Washington. Reknowned for its artistic use landscaping its roads, neighborhoods, and parks. Beautiful views of Lake Washington to the west. Directly east of Seattle across the lake. Racial diversity goes a little something like this: 50% white, 50% Asian. Majority of households have at least one person employed at Boeing and/or Microsoft at any given time.
Also known for pricey neighborhoods such as Beaux Arts, Somerset, Newport Shores and Factoria. Extremely white/Asian people try to be gangster or they shop at Hollister, Abercrombie&Fitch, etc. All of its high schools have been included in Newsweeks Top 50 Public High Schools. This includes Bellevue, Newport, Sammamish, and International high schools.Extreme amounts of preps, emo kids, and the word "hella".
asian: yo, bitch, i be half azn n half white. lets use my dads benz to go get some weed. helllla.
preppy bellevue girl: omg lets go to bell square and buy something from the hollister/abercrombie!!
black seattle kid: wut up with all these rich bellevue crackers, g??
On the commercial side, the city is dominated by a regional shopping mall, PACCAR, and a few tech firms. Major developments promise to bring an influx of population, further eroding Bellevue's suburban/rural aesthetic in favor of commercial aggrandizement and psuedo-trendy-yuppie-condo-villages. Commercial Bellevue aspires to the vibrancy of its northern neighbor, Kirkland, but its downtown lacks the natural beauty that the Kirkland waterfront possesses, and is defined more by its wide, pedestrian-unfriendly street grid and developer Kemper Freeman's sophomoric attempts at creating an eastside version of Seattle's Belltown. (A container store, sir?). People who think that Bellevue residents are elitist have never been to Southern California or New England.
v. 2. to escape, in mind and body, from your current state of affairs to a land many thought only existed in or around heaven.
I bellevue to Bellevue frequently.
