Beideman Avenue

Beideman Avenue from Westfield Avenue - 2003-06-25

Beideman Avenue, situated in Camden’s Cramer Hill and East Camden sections, plays a significant role in the local geography. Positioned east of North 32nd Street, this avenue stretches from the Delaware River, spanning across Harrison Avenue, and continues south to Cleveland Avenue. After a brief interruption by the railroad tracks, it resumes on the other side, traversing from Lemuel Avenue through the area formerly known as Westfield Acres, now recognized as Baldwin’s Run, and extends to Westfield Avenue.

The nomenclature of Beideman Avenue pays homage to the Beideman family, notable landowners who possessed a substantial tract of land in the northern expanse of Cramer Hill before its transformation into a predominantly residential neighborhood. Their influence and holdings contributed significantly to the development and history of this vibrant area.
