25th Street


Twenty-fifth Street, initially identified as Fulton Street, originates in what was originally known as the Pavonia neighborhood, now encompassed within Cramer Hill, and extends southward to Carman Street in East Camden. Its original designation underwent a change, occurring sometime after the annexation of Stockton Township to Camden in 1899.

The street commences at the Delaware River, where the Farragut Sportsman Association maintains its docks. Progressing south, it traverses River Road, passes through the Pavonia railroad switching yard, connects to Federal Street, and briefly extends to Carman Street. Notably, before World War II, the foot of North 25th Street was home to several moored houseboats.

Consistent with the numbering convention in Camden, the street adopts the label North 25th Street above Federal and transforms into South 25th Street below Federal.
