Rex
Place


REX PLACE ran east from opposite 317 North 5th Street for one block, ending its run at 309 North 6th Street, between Penn and Linden Street. The north side of Rex Place had rear access to homes in the 500 block of Linden Street. The south side, beginning at North 5th Street, had the rear of the First Presbyterian Church, and 16 row homes. 510, 512, 514, and 516 Rex Place were three story buildings, the rest were two-story homes. Thirty homes were taken in 1951 to expand the Ben Franklin Bridge Plaza. People were still living on Rex Place into the 1980s. Further creeping encroachment from the Rutgers Camden campus spelled the doom of this small street. The city gave over rights to the street in the summer of 1999. A parking lot sits on what was Rex Place.

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