Jefferson Street
aka
Jefferson Avenue


JEFFERSON STREET, which officially, as far as city and county land, tax, and title records go is Jefferson Avenue, runs from the Delaware River east to South 10th Street, one block north of Chelton Avenue. At one time Jefferson Street carried straight through, however, the construction of I-676 interrupted Jefferson Street and wiped out all structures east of the railroad tracks to Master Street

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