23rd Street


Twenty-Third Street originates in the area initially known as the Pavonia section, now part of Cramer Hill, and concludes at Federal Street in East Camden. Its establishment predates the publication of the 1887-1888 Camden City Directory, indicating its existence by that time. Starting originally at Harrison Avenue, the street extends southward, crosses River Road, passes through the Pavonia railroad switching yard, and continues from Howell Street until it reaches Federal Street.
