From the 1874 Newark City Directory:

Short line between Newark and New York and the most comfortable and direct route to all parts of the West.

From "Newark and Its Leading Businessmen" 1891

The Erie Railroad reaches Newark by way of the Newark and Paterson Railroad, which it practically owns.  Its depots are at the foot of Fourth Avenue, At Chester Avenue and in Woodside.  This road affords accommodation to a large number of people in the northern part of the city, as does the New York and Greenwood Lake Railroad which extends from Greenwood Lake to Jersey City, a distance of over fifty miles.  This road and its Orange branch, enter the city at its extreme northern boundary.
