Saving Camden

Feature

Friday, September 10, 2010

According to crime statistics from 2009, Camden, New Jersey ranks as America's most dangerous city. Some residents are looking to the arts to try to turn the city around. With a new theater opening this month, we wondered if an arts district can really save Camden. Produced by Studio 360's Peter Crimmins.

When I heard the comment about Gloucester being a "richer" or more "upscale" neighborhood where all the money went, (I'm paraphrasing of course) I literally laughed out loud. I grew up in Gloucester. And while it clearly was better off than Camden, it was also a lower middle class town at best. "Poor white trash" is how I think of it...although I do so with great affection.
