18th Street


Eighteenth Street extends from River Avenue northward, passing Harrison Avenue, in the area initially known as Pavonia, now part of the Cramer Hill neighborhood. This section is entirely recognized as North 18th Street. Additionally, there’s a brief segment of Eighteenth Street in East Camden, spanning just one block southward from Federal Street to Carman Street, which has no assigned addresses. By the time the 1887-1888 Camden City Directory was issued, the street was already established and was initially named Dayton Avenue. It was renamed to its current name shortly after the 1900 Census.
