From “Newark and Its Leading Businessmen” 1891:

The Newark & Pompton Turnpike Company was incorporated on February 14, 1806.  Its road ran from North Broad Street, now Belleville AVenue, in a northwesterly direction to Bloomfield and Cranstown, now Montclair, thence over the First Mountain, through Caldwell to Pompton Plains.  This road is now Bloomfield Avenue and is under the care of the Essex County Road Board within the limits of the county.
