Camden sets hearing on Big J address

By CAROL COMEGNO

CAMDEN

The battleship USS New Jersey will get a new address once it is moved next month to the downtown Waterfront near the New Jersey Aquarium: 62 Battleship Place, Camden 08103.

Camden City Council has scheduled a public hearing for an ordinance designating one block of vacated Clinton Street at the Delaware River for the new address.

Sixty-two is the Navy's numerical designation for its most historic battleship. The number is on both sides of the ship's bow.

City Council unanimously approved the measure on first reading last week.

"Bringing the battleship New Jersey to the Camden Waterfront is a unique project, so it deserves a unique address," said Home Port Alliance member Frank Fulbrook.

The hearing will be Aug. 23 at 1 p.m. in council chambers in Camden City Hall.
