Cleaned all pulleys with brake clean or similar before putting new parts on? Did you try spinning all pulleys by hand when belt(s) were off, to see if any have a fair bit of resistance? Sometimes worn bearings in alternator will make similar sound, so rotate it by hand, while applying a little pressure up and down, side to side to see if bearing feels rough at all, as it should feel smooth . Make sure also that you don't have any oil leaks, or small coolant leaks that may be dripping on a pulley or the belt. I have also found (just my experience) that those notched belts, rather than complete groove all the way around, will do that to me sometimes.

yes you can move it to the other side of the street. Just dont run it more than a few minutes because without the belt the water pump won't turn. Just be aware that the power steering wont work either in this process so it will be difficult to steer.

Check the belt tensioner they squeal when they fail due to constant spring pressure on the pulley> if you replace it I would suggest replaceing the belt unless it is new, check the alternator bearings ( spin it by hand with the belt off> they are known to fail)finally clean all pully and make sure the belt is perfectly clean and nothing on it before installing it. NOTE:Never get any grease on a serp belt it will make noise.
