Trenton Avenue


TRENTON AVENUE runs parallel to Haddon Avenue from 728 Washington Avenue southeast to across Newton Avenue to Line Street, lying to the west of Haddon Avenue. While I have nothing to document this, I'd bet a nickel that it was laid out at the same time as Carteret Street, which ran parallel to Haddon on the east side. Other than as a residential street, Trenton Avenue may be best remembered for the two bars that were at either end of the 500 block.

Do you have a Trenton Avenue memory or picture. Let me know by e-mail so it can be included here.

LaMaina's Cafe

The bar at Newton and Trenton Avenues was operated by the LaMaina family for many years. When Prohibition was repealed in 1933, Nick LaMaina procured a liquor license, and opened LaMaina's Cafe, which was well known for its jumbo sandwiches.  501 Trenton Avenue was known as Stanley's Tavern in the mid 1950s, and Petro's Cafe by 1959. During the mid-1960s and early 1970 it was called Syl's Tavern.

After standing vacant through most of the 1980s and 1990s, the bar was razed.
