West Orange, New Jersey is NOT a suburb of New York City.  New Jersey is a State, near New York state.  In the info about Ian Ziering, it says he was raised in West Orange, New Jersey, a suburb of New York City.  That is Impossible.  West Orange, New Jersey is a city all to itself as are most New Jersey cities. It has nothing to do with New York City.

Whatever road existed prior to I280

Like this history of I280 explains.

Route 25A in 1939, a spur of Route 25 (U.S. Route 1/9) that was to run from Jersey City west to Newark. This portion of road would become Route 58 in 1953 (the Route 58 designation was removed in the 1990s). When the Interstate Highway System was being planned, the Route 3 freeway was planned to become an Interstate.

Still is commuting distance of 11 miles. Instead of 15 minutes, maybe 45 minutes.
Still considered commuting distance.
