Twenty-First
Street


TWENTY-FIRST STREET begins in what was originally called the Pavonia section of what is now considered Cramer Hill and ends in East Camden at Federal Street. The street had already been laid out by the time the 1887-1888 Camden City Directory was published. The street begins at Harrison Avenue and runs south, across River Road to the Pavonia railroad switching yard, then from Howell Street to Federal Street

Do you have a Twenty-First Street memory or picture? Let me know by e-mail so it can be included here.
