Beach Street

Beach Street formerly ran north along the fence to Erie Street. 2004-06

Beach Street, a small street in North Camden, once stretched from York to Erie Street, just west of Point Street. Although listed in the 1878 City Directory, houses did not appear in City Directories until 1890. By 1947, only three houses were listed on Beach Street: 930, 932, and 934.

In around 2000, Beach Street was severed from Erie Street when Delaware Avenue was extended to Erie. While street signs for “York & Beach” and “Erie & Beach” still stand, the street itself became impassable. No houses remain standing on Beach Street, except for the one at 8 York Street, which stands opposite the intersection of York and Beach.
