Park
Boulevard


PARK BOULEVARD got its name from from the parks (Red Hill, Forest Hill, and Farnham) which it originally skirted. It is one of the three main thoroughfares of the Parkside neighborhood, the others being Kaighn Avenue and Baird Boulevard. It begins at Haddon Avenue as a continuation of Chestnut Street, heading north before curving east more or less parallel to the Cooper River, crossing Baird Boulevard and Kaighn Avenue before coming to an end at Vesper Boulevard, which is the border of Harleigh Cemetery.

Park Avenue landmarks include the Pearlye Building, Camden High School, Farnham Park, and Pomona Hall, the home of the Camden County Historical Society. More recent significant buildings include the Boys and Girls Club, built on the site where the Congregation Beth El Synagogue stood from the 1920s through the late 1990s, and the Faison Mews senior citizens apartments, which opened in 2006.

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

1275 Park Boulevard  was the home of my aunt and uncle,  Joseph and Rose DiMassimo and their children, Joseph and Evelyn DiMassimo Berenato. That corner house had an apartment on the third floor and my parents and many others lived there for several years.  My uncle Joe's brother Eugenio Dimassimo and his wife Vitoria DiMassimo and their son Gabriel DiMassimo lived at 1275 Park Boulevard when they arrived from Italy as well until 1961 or 62.

I have learned that prior to my mother and father living on the third floor apt at this address one of the friends and his wife lived there.  He was a Camden Fireman, Leonard Iannelli along with his wife Olga.  I had heard this story all my life about poor Lenny getting killed so young but I never knew them or I was too young to remember any of them..

Mrs. Iannelli came from San Bartelomeo, Italy.  That is the same place my grandparents Anthony and Lorenzina Petrillo came from.  I don't know if they all knew each other back there or they became friends in Camden because they were from the same town.

  Brown died a few minutes after being admitted to Cooper Hospital with a chest wound. Ames, who police report was wounded in the head during the same incident, was released from that hospital's intensive care unit Monday.   

   Johnson, who has been released in $2,000 bail pending an August 1 hearing on charges of  possessing lottery paraphernalia, was permitted to sign his own $1,000 bail bond for appearance before the grand jury as a material witness.

    Police claim to have found more than 5,000 numbers slips while searching his home.

   Ames appeared at yesterday's hearing in a wheel chair. Among witnesses who testified yesterday were Jesse A. Jones,  50, of the 1100 block Cooper Street, Leon Williams, 65; of Kentucky Avenue, Atlantic City, and Hugh Johnson, 34, of the 800 block Cherry Street.
