Amber Street

Camden from South 3rd Street to South 6 Street, between Amber & Chestnut Streets - 1946

Amber Street, a minor thoroughfare in Camden, runs parallel to Kaighn Avenue, spanning from South 4th to South 6th Streets. Originally, its reach extended further westward, all the way to South 2nd Street. The street is commonly referred to as “the alley next to Triangle Liquor” on its eastern side near Broadway, and as “the alley next to the bank” on the western side of Broadway.

In the early 20th century, Amber Street was lined with residential homes. However, by the 1920s, the landscape had changed significantly. According to the 1924 Camden City Directory, there were no longer any occupied addresses on this street, marking a notable shift in its character and usage over time.
