Cambridge
Avenue


CAMBRIDGE AVENUE, also known as Cambridge Street, begins at the Delaware River in what was originally called the Pavonia section of what is now considered Cramer Hill and runs easterly, crossing Harrison Avenue, Pierce Avenue, Wayne Avenue, and River Avenue until it intersects  with North 27th Street, between North 26th Street and Dupont Street. Along with Dupont Street, it is one of only two east-west streets in Cramer Hill below North 27th Street to retain its name from before 1899, when this area was part of the town of Stockton. In that year Stockton, then comprising what is now known as East Camden and Cramer Hill, merged with Camden.
