Camden, NJ


WARREN AVENUE ran for one block, southeast from Mickle Street to what was 781 Wright Avenue, parallel to Haddon Avenue and Carteret Street. Warren Avenue first appeared in Camden's City Directories in 1899. There were homes occupied on Warren Avenue into the 1960s, however by 1969 Warren Avenue had no listings in the New Jersey Bell Telephone Reverse Directory, and was most likely gone. Like Carteret Street, which followed Warren Avenue into oblivion shortly afterwards, it was erased to make way for Route 676 and the Three Cooper Plaza medical building. Warren Avenue's exact location is roughly underneath the access ramp to Route 676 from what is now Mickle Boulevard.  

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

This aerial photo, cropped from a larger photograph showing the dismantlement of the railroad that had run from the old ferry terminal through the heart of Camden, shows Warren Avenue Street from it's "head" at the end of Mickle Street one block east of the old Armory, known as "Convention Hall" when this picture was taken. The homes on Warren Avenue are in the lower right corner, as you can see, some homes had the railroad tracks at their backdoors.

Slain Politician's Son Must Stand Trial for Killing of Father

William Schiller, 30-year-old former summer cop, was indicted for murder today and must stand trial for the fatal shooting of his father, Jacob Schiller, 72, well-known and well-liked politician.

The indictment was one of 39 true bills in a presentment made by the new September term of grand jury to Judge Samuel M. Shay.

In addition to Schiller, five other men were indicted for murder.

These are Peter Citeroni, 28, of 919 South Fifth Street; Samuel DiGiacomo, 18, of 314 Berkley Street; Stanzo Palumbo, 20, of 314 Clinton Street; Joseph Patricci, 21, of 320 Berkley Street, and Fred Williams, colored, of Camden. All are in the county jail without bail and awaiting trial.

Schiller shot and killed his father at their home, 2420 Carman Street, last Saturday night. The elder Schiller had long tried to act as a conciliator between his son and the latter's wife, Augusta, who were estranged. Mrs. William Schiller wrote what police described as a "suicide note" and was found wandering dazedly through the city streets Monday, asserting that her father-in-law had been killed while trying to protect her. 

Citeroni fatally shot his sweetheart, Jennie Zucchi, 21, of 322 Warren Avenue, on August 30, at Haddon and Wright avenues. She died September 3. Citeroni, who has twice attempted to commit suicide, claimed Miss Zucchi had ended their friendship because of her father's objections to him.
