Twentieth
Street


TWENTIETH 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 Twentieth Street memory or picture? Let me know by e-mail so it can be included here.

My grandparents Flora and Bill Langdon (and their children, including my mother Jeanne Langdon) lived at 1137 North 20th Street in the early 1930s (1932?) on.  At some point, their son Arnold Langdon, bought the house and he continued to live there until his death February 14, 1973. I remember visiting as a child in the 1960s.

My DAD, William F. Campbell lived in Cramer Hill most of his life. He was a man of few words but a man who helped his community and friends when there was need. He was former President of the Cramer Hill Boys Club, an organization that gave a lot to the community for many years. He never looked for recognition, just believe in his quiet way that giving was part of life. He played for the Cramer Hill Wildcats years and year ago, boxed until he realized that maybe there was a better way to enjoy life. He loved Long Beach Island, and fished for enjoyment (I do not remember the two fishing clubs of which he was a member). He worked for Max Reihmann & Son roofing. When the family needed help he worked as a bartender at the Pavonia House Café at  River Road and 26th Street. His integrity was unquestioned. His loyalty to his friends, his church, St. Anthony and the Boys Club were well known. Many ex-leaders of the Boys Club remember Bill although not many are alive today. Bill Bridges wrote a piece in the Camden Courier at the time of his death that said it all. I always wished that I was the father he was, the man that he was.

My memory fails me, I have not lived in Cramer Hill for almost 50 years, but I always remember 923 North 20th Street, as my HOME. Washington Elementary, VETS, WWHS, Mike's Sub Shop, the #15 bus, my local friends, Frankie Z, Ben, Teddy, Gus, Bobby N. and I could go on.

Cramer Hill was a good place to live. We unfortunately were isolated from the total integration of the rest of the city, we only had one black family in the community and they were the best educated family in the “Hill”. I Could say much more, but it is only important to me to remember my DAD and MOM, sisters and brother and friend.
