Belmont runs from east to west, a little over a mile south of O'Hare. Therefore the answer varies depending on where on Belmont Avenue you are referring to. The most famous parts of Belmont are in the Lakeview neighborhood, which starts at about Damen or Ashland on the west and goes east to the Lake. From Ashland and Belmont to O'Hare is about 14 miles, driving. As the crow flies, it would be slightly shorter, maybe 12 miles. The western edge of Belmont, though, is actually in Franklin Park, a close-in suburb. The end of Belmont is about 5 miles driving from O'Hare, or maybe 3 miles as the crow flies.
