Lincoln Park Historic District


Lincoln Park Historic District


Lincoln Park Historic District covers 10 blocks and is bound by Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd (High St.), W. Kinney St., McCarter Highway, South St., Pennsylvania Ave., Lincoln Park, and Clinton Ave. The district consists of two parks, three landmark churches, various residential structures, and some commercial buildings. The district is most noted for its well-preserved collection of late 19th-early 20th century urban townhouse architecture.



Condition History

The area went through a decline after the 1967 riots. The Lincoln Park/Coast Cultural District (LPCCD) was formed in 2002 to reinvigorate the area by investing in the creation of mixed use, mixed income housing with a focus on the visual arts.
