Streets
of
Camden, NJ


Have you ever wondered, why did they call it Line Street, who was Baird and why did he get a Boulevard, or whether Mickle is a noun or a verb? Here is where (eventually) we will find out that Benson Street was not named for a TV sitcom, Carman Street was not named for a lady named Carmen, and who Admiral Wilson was. 

Those are the little mysteries..... will someone please explain to me Joint Alley?

NOTE: The City Council of the City of Camden has renamed several streets in the 1990s. In one case, a street named in part for an American Soldier who died while serving his country was stripped of its name, an insult to every veteran and the families of those who have served and sacrificed. This website does not and will not recognize the actions of that body regarding the history and heritage of the City of Camden until that wrong has been redressed.
