Our house was a twin. Our neighbors were the Segals. Beyond them (1425) were the Sternbergs. Across the street (1438) was a Mr Laveson (sp) and the Klines. Across Lansdowne Avenue lived the Weinsteins (1431 in photo). The neighborhood was primarily solid middle class Jewish, with quite a few Orthodox, though we were not. I recall a Rabbi Riff walking the neighborhood. Clearly a distinguished man, though his appearance scared to death the non-Jewish neighborhood children. There was also a Rabbi Kellman, whose beautiful daughter Nadine I yearned for. At the end of the block lived a Jackie Chew, always in trouble. Our school was Parkside to which we all (safely) walked to and from home. Other kids I played with had names like Asbell, Bantivoglio, Clyman, Colangelo, Friedenberg, Lundy, Parks, and Sherman.

I do recall that we lived there briefly owing to my father's restaurant at Second and Market. He catered to the executives at RCA and Campbell Soup. He had bought a house in Haddonfield at the outbreak of the war which was occupied by a tenant. Laws then  prohibited evicting tenants during wartime, so we remained in Camden till about 1949, when we bought a summer house at the shore. He may have held title to the house into the fifties, possibly renting it before selling it. We had a two-car garage behind the house which housed black (always black) Buicks.

When I left Parkside, I was sent off to boarding school and then--my family having moved to another house in Haddonfield--to Moorestown Friends. I cannot imagine what this once clean, well-kept neighborhood must look like now.

Finally, I recall Mr Sam Bosco, my father's barber, who called at his office twice a month to trim his hair. It seems he may have had a darker side judging by the news reports.
