Belleville, the cherry blossom capital of America, is in Essex County, in the Gateway Region. It is in the suburbs of Newark, and southeast of Bloomfield and Montclair.

The community was originally established as a Dutch settlement on the Passaic River. Its name derives from French meaning "beautiful city". An interesting event that happened in Belleville in 1798 was one of the first steam engines was built by John Stevens.
