Carteret
Street


Carteret Street, in Camden's old Ninth Ward, ran just two blocks, from the old Armory (later Convention Hall) in the 700 block of Mickle Street southeast, crossing Wright Avenue, to its end at Newton Avenue. It was laid and out and houses were built along it after 1891, a stone's throw from Camden's old City Hall at Haddon and Wright Avenues. The street ran parallel to Haddon Avenue to the west, and Warren Avenue to the east.. 

Carteret Street fell victim to "progress", that progress being the construction of Interstate 676 that in some ways was more devastating to Camden than the building of the Ben Franklin Bridge. There were still people living on Carteret Street as late as 1969 and Carteret Street was still there into the mid-1970s. Today Carteret Street is no more, having been erased at the Mickle Street end by the parking lot that lies adjacent to the "3 Cooper Plaza" medical building and at the Newton Avenue end by the highway. 

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

At age 81 I am the eldest grand daughter of Charles and Sarah Auerbach and can remember staying with my aunt Yetta in the family home on Carteret St. An outhouse was in the backyard but then removed. An indoor bathroom was installed on the 2nd. floor. I can remember the gas lamps being lit on the street. A park was nearby that we could walk to. Train tracks were behind the property and it was very noisy but it was fun watching the trains and learning to spell the names of the states that were printed on the boxcars. Yetta lived alone there for several years after her siblings moved away. Bessie, Freda and Frances moved to Philadelphia where as Freda worked as a secretary to the president of Kuhn and Blum curtain manufactures located in Kensington. Frances worked at Warner Brothers Cement in Philly. Bessie was ill with TB and had spent time in a sanitarium as a child and never held a job but stayed home to keep house and cook for the other two. In the early 60's these three moved to Miami when both Freda and Frances retired. They bought a house at 3120 NW 5th St. Tres (Teresa) and her husband, Joe Mazer, had moved to Miami after WWII. I moved to Miami in 1956 to go to school. Yetta sold the house on Carteret St. and bought a smaller one in East Camden where she lived until her death of uterine cancer in 1950. Sarah, my grandmother whom I am named after, also had died of the same disease. Charles passed away from pneumonia. I never knew either as they were gone by the time I was born. Issy (Isabel), before her marriage to Joe Wachtel was a grade school teacher at Garfield School in Est Camden. She lived with my mother, Flora Hazel, and father, Tanfield Kotlikoff. - Sarah Fiori, March 2019
