Birch Street


Birch Street once extended from Front Street through to Ninth. However, various development projects over the years have caused portions of Birch Street to be removed from maps.

In the early 1920s, construction of the Delaware River Bridge led to the demolition of the south side of Birch Street from Front to Third Street. Subsequently, Fourth through Eighth Streets were gradually taken over by the Delaware River Port Authority for administrative and maintenance buildings, as well as for the construction of the Northgate Apartment Buildings.
