Camden, NJ

Hudson Street
and Hudson Place


HUDSON STREET ran one-half block south from Federal Street, just west of Broadway, near Camden's City Hall. For many years it was best known as the home of the Hudson Tavern. The street still more or less exists, but is unmarked. The Hudson Yavern, the last remaining structure on the street, was razed in 2003.

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