Cramer Street

Cramer Street derives its name from Alfred Cramer, a visionary real estate developer. His innovative concept of selling building lots on a monthly installment plan led to the successful sale of over 5000 lots in Cramer Hill and East Camden by 1897. In addition to Cramer Street, both the Alfred Cramer Elementary School and the Cramer Hill neighborhood are named in his honor.
