Hyde Park
Street


HYDE PARK STREET is as one block street  that runs south from Kaighn Avenue between Pavonia Street and South 3rd Street for one block. It first appeared in Camden's City Directories in the 1888-1889 edition. 

In September of 1932, Courier-Post reporter E. Allen Hughes wrote a three part series of articles about the small streets, alleys, courts and places of Camden, including Hyde Park Street.

As recently as 1947 there were 21 houses on Hyde Park Street, as of 2011 there is nothing standing. 

Do you have a Hyde Park Street memory or picture. Let me know by e-mail so it can be included here.
