Bank
Street


BANK STREET runs from Baird Boulevard and Carman Street southwest, crossing Marlton Pike, and continuing to Admiral Wilson Boulevard, where it ends. When the 1947 city directory was compiled there were only four houses on Bank Street, in the 2500 block. A block of apartments were later built nearby, these were condemned as unfit for human habitation around 1990 and razed a few years later. A few single family homes had also built on Bank Street between Boyd Street and Admiral Wilson Boulevard between 1947 and 1951. 

Bank Street acquired a very bad reputation in the late 1980s and all through the 1990s as part of the open-air drug market known as "the Alley", which centered on the alley one end of which was on Bank Street between Morse and Boyd Streets.

A few new homes now stand on Bank Street, erected as part of the McGuire Gardens redevelopment undertaken by the Housing Authority of the City of Camden and brought to a successful completion under the leadership of Dr. Maria Marquez in the early 2000s.

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