Atlantic Avenue

Camden Grocers Exchange. Northwest corner of Atlantic Avenue and Ferry Avenue

Positioned three blocks south of Kaighn Avenue, Atlantic Avenue extends from Front Street in the west to Haddon Avenue in the east. The eastern segment of Atlantic Avenue, stretching beyond 7th Street, presents a combination of residential and commercial properties that persists to this day. The thoroughfare persists through the span between 7th and 9th Streets, accommodating the crossing of both interstate highway I-676 and an elevated rail line. As Atlantic Avenue progresses from 9th Street towards Haddon Avenue, its character shifts predominantly towards a residential landscape.
