Fulton Place


FULTON PLACE lay between Linden and Pearl Street in North Camden. The street, which only had homes on its north side, was ran for one block and originally was from North 5th to North 6th Street. When the Delaware River Bridge was built in the early 1920s the first five homes on Fulton Place were taken to make way for the new construction. The triangular lot on he south side of Fulton place, as seen in the map below, became the site for the bridge's administration building, and later that of the Delaware River Port Authority.

There were homes on Fulton place as late as 1957. Fulton Place disappeared altogether when the land was taken to make way for a parking lot for the Delaware River Port Authority headquarters.

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