Estimates placed those attending at more than 200, with many standing after that number of seats filled up under a large tent near the edge of Broad Street.

Camden budget leaves out tech village

City may purchase old Maxway building

(The online version of this story has been updated to correctly show that asbestos mitigation and demolition of the Maxway building would be paid for out of a fund created by the 2000 sale of city watershed property, as will the purchase of the building. Hospitality taxes would only be used to transform the property into the proposed "pocket park.")

‘Reconciliation’: Doby, Baruch statues to be unveiled March 29

John Rainey wants to make sure of one thing: what happens in Camden on March 29 will not be about him. Rainey said the unveiling of "Reconciliation," a piece of art featuring life-size statuary of two of Camden's native sons, will happen because of a unique collaboration. Yes, it will be his vision, but as the combined work of others to see that vision come to life. That, Rainey said during a recent interview, will make the day unique.
