Amber Street


AMBER STREET is a small street that runs parallel to Kaighn Avenue from South 4th Street to South 6th Street. In earlier times, Amber Street extended as far west as South 2nd Street. Amber Street is best known as "the alley next to Triangle Liquor" east of Broadway, and "the alley next to the bank" west of Broadway. Although there were homes on Amber Street as late as the 1910s, by the time the 1924 Camden City Directory was compiled, there were no occupied addresses on Amber Street.

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