Bailey Street in Camden, NJ, seems to be named after William T. Bailey, a real estate developer. He played a key role in constructing rows of homes between North 5th and North 6th Streets along State, Grant, Bailey, and York Streets. Additionally, Bailey was involved in developing other blocks in North Camden. This suggests that his contributions significantly shaped the residential landscape of this area, reflecting the growth and urban development in Camden during his active years. Bailey’s influence in North Camden is marked by his involvement in creating housing and developing neighborhoods, which is commemorated in the naming of Bailey Street.
