Berkley Street


BERKLEY STREET was originally and was for many, many years spelled Berkeley Street. The street was named for Lord Berkeley, who, with Sir George Carteret owned the colony of New Jersey from 1664 to 1674. When originally laid out, Berkley Street east of Broadway was known as Hamilton Street, in honor of Hamilton Beckett of London, England, the son of Henry and Mary Beckett. The Becketts at one time owned the land from Royden to Line Street and from West to Second Street. In 1882, to avoid confusion, the name of Hamilton Street was dropped, and the street became Berkley Street for its entire length. Similar adjustments were made for Washington Street and Clinton Street. 

In 1902 the Pennsylvania Railroad opened up a series of freight sheds on South Second Street at Berkley Street. 

The 200 Block of Berkley Street was razed along with several other blocks west of South 3rd and south of Mickle Street around 1970 to make room for the Royal Court Townhomes and the Mickle Tower apartment building. 

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

....I have fond remembrances of wonderful neighbors on Berkley Street. Everyone would help keep streets tidy.  Whoever would go out to sweep their own sidewalk, would also sweep neighbor's on both sides.  Berkley Street then was predominately inhabited by Italian, Polish and Irish families.  Our family was the first black family in the 700 block.  We got along fine and did not discover till years later that we were being eyeballed by the community to see what kind of folks we were....... 

      Sally Star was a friend to our neighbor's sister, and at the height of her popularity, would visit with her get up on, which we thought was a big deal.

My husband's great-great grand- parents William H. & Sarah Collins lived at 452 Berkley Street in Camden for many years.

They first appear at this address in the 1884 Camden City Directory. William H. died in 1891, but his widow, Sarah, continued to live there until 1924-1926. I still don't have an exact date of death for her. Her name last appears in the 1924 Camden City Directory as living there.

ALDERSON—In loving memory of a dear mother and grandmother, Minnie Alderson, who passed away February 14, 1936. 

Just a line of sweet remembrance, Just a memory fond and true. Just a token of love's devotion, That my heart still longs for you. 

Though suffering she breathed not a murmur, For the Comforter stood by her side And whispered, "Fear not, I am with thee, With Me shalt thou ever abide." 

On the river a pale boatman hastened, She heard the soft dip of his oar; Then from earth and sorrow he bore her Across to that beautiful shore. 

Sadly missed by 
Granddaughters, Daughter and Son-in-law.

Memories from Berkley St. 

A dozen kids from Berkley Street. Hanging out on our front step, if not there the abandoned house at 702, we called it the Ghost House and let imagination run wild. Back in the day windows were not boarded, house was full of furniture knickknacks dishes could be seen in the china closet, nice carpet. We never knew where the occupants were or why it was left that way, only that supposedly two sisters lived there and they got sick? House stayed in described condition for 15 years I can swear to, probably much longer. Played stick ball in the street. Step ball cross way in the street, old fogey at 705 would chase us, me and Jerry put nails under some guys Ford tires, he knew we did it but had no proof, said he got 4 flats. Home Run on that job. 

Neighborhood kids were into mischief but really weren't bad, used to collect bottles for the deposit would take then to 7th and Royden Street. The little butcher shop and market, ate candy until we were sick. Played football on the island that ran down middle of 7th Street, burned Christmas trees there too, boy we could get those flames up to the electric wires running across island, don't think we ever damaged them! Played many hours in the cannon park or the monument park around 7th and Haddon Avenue near the old section of Cooper Hospital. Monument Park had concrete walks all around cutting in to center of park from each corner and around the fenced circle contain the monument, which I can't recall what it was but I probably rode my bike all thru that park a thousand times or more. All kinds of Corner stores and taverns, hung out at McKenna's corner with 2 or 3 sons, kid we called German George lived across the street never did know if he was German? 

Back alleys. I was king of the back alley, the other kids were good but I was the best. I could travel from school on Spruce Street to home, to hide in all the parks, the hospital the church and much more thru the back allies without ever going down the street only had to cross streets at certain places. Thru snowballs at cars and the drivers would try to get us, but could never catch us. Some hot rodders lived down the street and we loved them to stop at our corner were you had to turn left and squeal the tires as they pulled around the corner. I could go on and on here and I only covered year I was 11 to 13 years old.  I was in the younger group of kids, it would be nice to have my sister come on here as I sure she has many beloved memories of Berkley Street in Camden, New Jersey.

Berkley was the typical 50's 60's street you may see in any era movie.

DEAD MAN'S RELATIVES FOUND BY NEWS STORY

Sought since his death in Los Angeles last week, Camden relatives of Harry Piper, Jr., were located yesterday by police.

Piper's parents, Mr. and Mrs. Harry Piper, Sr., live at 713 Berkley street. The father, reading of his son's death, appeared at police headquarters for additional information. He said his son had lived in California the last seven years.

In a long distance telephone conversation with Los Angeles police, the elder Piper learned his son had left $1000 in insurance to a Mrs. Hanley there and that she was arranging for his burial.

Piper said he would agree to such arrangements and would wire his permission.
