Pompton Lakes was the first borough to be formed in Passaic County, as the "boroughitis" that had struck elsewhere hit the county. The newly formed borough did not acquire territory from more than one township, which would have entitled Pompton Lakes to a seat on the Board of chosen freeholders. The borough was named for the Pompton people, who lived in the area. An outer-ring suburb of New York City, Pompton Lakes is located approximately 20 miles (32 km) northwest of Midtown Manhattan. From the higher mountains in and around the borough one can see the New York City skyline.
