From "Newark and Its Leading Businessmen" 1891
The Newark and New York Railroad is a branch of the Central Railroad, and affords communication with New York to a very large number of people residing in the heart of the city. It also has branches extending to Elizabeth and to all the sea shore resorts along the Jersey coast, and in the Summer season is patronized by hundreds of Newark businessmen, who go backwards and forwards between the city and their summer homes.
