Vine Street

Store and Dwellings, S.W. Cor. 4th and Vine Streets, Camden, N.J. Damaged by Wind Storm, April 2nd, 1912

Vine Street in North Camden is one of the city’s “Tree” streets, likely inspired by Philadelphia. In the past, Vine Street extended all the way to the Delaware River, where it served as the terminal for the Cooper’s Point Ferry, also known as the Vine Street Ferry. Moving eastward, Vine Street, like many other streets in North Camden, stretches all the way to 10th Street.

Vine street was the site of a 1912 Camden, NJ cyclone which did considerable damage.

Notably, North Camden’s Holy Name Church is located on Vine Street. In the past, the street was also home to John F. Daly’s Cafe, Ann’s Tavern, and the Standard Movie Theater, also known as the North Camden Theater.

Among the interesting individuals who have resided on Vine Street over the years are John Francis “Pop” Daly, and the brothers Theodore T. Cornelius and Edward K. Cornelius.
