The central city is situated on a long soft hill, the southwestern parts of the city lay in a formerly marsh of the Cardinal River. This marshland is layed dry from F. Chardonique in the 1790ies, to build a straight street from Stanton to the south.

History

Most francish speaking settlers (among of other) founded Belleville 1738 as a small port, now on the eastern part of the town in the suburb Pallerton. The town then grow to the north (now suburb Frasoul) and along the beach north of the soft hillback between the sea and the Cardinal River, on which now run the Central Avenue. Around 1820 in Frasoul at the beach opened the first hotels and bars for lazy people from Stanton.

1797 the ingenieer Frederic Chardonique build a straight street through the swamp of the Cardinal River from Stanton to the south (now the Chardonique Avenue, running straight 9 km from Greystone Park in Stanton to Sprelton). To make dry the land, he let dig some drain canals. With opening of the main railway line to the south 1857 here a second cluster of urbanisation start to grow. Today this area (ZIP-code aras 11089 and 11080) is a more calme part of the town as at Central Avenue.

1839 the first railway was build from Stanton, Pitcher Street to the Liberty Place. As more and more people from Stanton choose Belleville as home, instead of the railway 1897 was build the Central Avenue as new main ateria for the town. A new railway line was opened further south (now the commuter-line to Stone Cape) with the hope, to urbanisize the town further south of this new railway.

In this 1890ies years the question arise, to incorporate Bellevile in a greater city of Stanton. Local politicans fear to lost its influence and newspapers warn: "Do not make Stanton too big!" And waht to do with the rest of the county? Give it to Colsex or Wynntethla? At a poll 1898 the inhabitants of Belleville vote for her independence and a more "free and lazy" town as Stanton with own style and character. Nevertheless there was technical cooperation with Stanton for water and electricty and Belleville streetcars run over the boundary to Stanton and vice versa.

Many people mean the new railway from 1897 was too south for the central city. A better fast connection to Stanton long years was wished in the heart of the city of Belleville. On May 1915 then two subway-lines was prolongated to Belleville - one along the beach (now line 21) and one under the trees in the middle of the Central Avenue (now line 5). In February 1942 subway line 11 reached Old Jorg. There are since then many discussions, to prolongate this line to a connection with line 5 at the Central Avenue, but the subway-management in Stanton mean, there are other more important lines to build as this.

A first motorway was opened 1938, leading from Ocelote Place via the thin urbansized swamp of the Cardinal River to the south. The northern part now is the FS-101. 1959 from the forking near Hollerton the FS-1 was breaking through to Stanton - here some houses are to demolish. In the second half of the 20th century the free areas between the central city and the main railway station were urbansized, but til now at the western boundary is some free land.
