A Current Description of Bloomfield, New Jersey
Bloomfield, with a current population of approximately 45,061 (1990 census), is over 190 years old and named in honor of General Joseph Bloomfield, a Revolutionary War hero and one-time governor of New Jersey.
A community of considerable charm, Bloomfield is both residential and commercial in character. If one were to stand on the Revolutionary War Parade grounds, known as "The Green," surrounded by beautiful colonial-style homes, you would feel the striking peacefulness of a New England village.
Bisected by the Garden State Parkway, this town of moderately priced homes just 15 miles from midtown Manhattan is a commuting corridor. It has 10 ramps over the five miles within its borders, and its two main commercial streets -- Bloomfield Avenue and Broad Street -- are six-lane Essex County roads.
A recent transportation enhancement is NJ Transit's Montclair Connection being routed through Bloomfield directly into Penn Station, shaving 15 minutes off the current half-hour commute to Manhattan and eliminating the transfer to the PATH train in Hoboken.
South Bloomfield is served by two stations of the NJ Transit Montclair-Boonton Line to Hoboken Terminal or to Penn Station in Midtown Manhattan via the Secaucus Junction. About 55% of the weekday trains terminate in Penn Station via Midtown Direct. On weekends the line terminates in Hoboken. The Bloomfield train stationis located off of Bloomfield Avenue in the downtown area. The Watsessing Avenue station is at the corner of Watsessing Avenue and Orange Street, and is located below ground.
The Grove Street station on the Newark City Subway line of the Newark Light Rail at the south end of Bloomfield provides service to Newark Penn Station, created as part of an extension to Belleville and Bloomfield that opened in 2002.
NJTransit bus service is available to and from Newark on the 11, 27, 28, 29, 34, 72, 90, 92, 93 and 94 routes, with local service on the 709 bus line. In October 2009, the Go Bus 28 route was introduced, offering service nearly all day from Bloomfield Train Station to Newark Liberty International Airport.
