2nd Street

2nd Street, North of Elm Street

Second Street extends in a north-south direction, lying between Front and Third Streets. Its path remains parallel to the Delaware River until it reaches Mechanic Street. Historically, this street ran continuously, but in the early 1970s, a transformation occurred on the eastern side of North 2nd Street below Mickle Street. This involved the removal of several buildings, making way for the construction of two public housing projects: the Royal Court townhomes and the Mickle Tower senior citizens apartment building.
