Just spent a month visiting friends, bumming around, going "down the shore" :D, and taking these pictures. Hope you enjoy!

These towns are located along the PATCO speedline stretching out from Camden City.

Part 2: Historic Burlington City

I was here to see a friend who was playing in a Tina Turner revue that was performing at the riverfront. It was a no pictures allowed event, however.

Burlington is a small NJ city right on the Delaware, which contains many 18th and 19th century old brick homes and businesses. It resembles parts of old Philadelphia.

This is an apothecary (pharmacy) that has been operating continuously since 1731

Part 4: Camden City. It's not as bad as you think.

OK, well I'm cheating here. Most of Camden doesn't look as good as this area, around Cooper St. just south of Rutgers. Camden is coming up verrrry sloooowly. I think she'll make it though.

Welcome back home!

I was able to relate to the Camden and Atlantic City photos the most! Thanks for sharing all of those photos!

Some comments:

- I was pretty amazed how well in Collingswood, the concrete highway was in good condition. Along CR 543 through northeast Camden, it was a whole other ball game!

- Atlantic City is improving and a lot of the run down buildings are getting teared down for newer stuff. North Carolina Ave is a good place to check out sometime.

- The Light Rail train through Burlington City, i believe through the city limits, there all at-grade rail crossings right? Nonetheless, the train service is REALLY facelifting the south jersey towns along the route. Riverton and Riverside i also noticed with a lot of improvement.

- The Atlantic City dome, always reminded me of Rocky for some strange reason even though it has nothign to do with the Phila Art Museum. At least Pat's is over on teh AC boardwalk.

- All of the photos felt very south jersey'ish. The most northern towns of the south jersey feel are in southern Middlesex County; Cranbury and Jamesburg.

I also want to congratulate you, SouthJersey7 on these excellent photos! I've never been to or seen Haddonfield before. I'm quite impressed by these pics of it. Burlington is lookin' good here. Way to catch the River Line train! Yes, Jerseyman, the River Line runs at-grade pretty much the entire way between Trenton & Camden. I like the AC & Camden pics too!

Thanks for the props everybody. In the future when I have more time I hope to go way more in depth with some of these towns and cities. Consider this the "Sampler Platter" :shades:

The area around the train in Burlington City is very nice. My Mother-In-Law's exboyfriend owned Tommy G's restaurant right there in downtown (I believe they moved now). It was an old bank and you could eat in the Vault!! Nice pics.

I'm glad to see that there's a glimmer of hope for poor old Camden. There really are some great buildings there if one will only look past the grime. Thanks for sharing the photos.

I loved the pictures, especially the one of the old Apothecary and the Camden pictures.
