One Community, One Direction, One Spirit

The East Trenton Collaborative (ETC) is a group of non-profit and community development organizations whose mission is to strengthen the physical, social and economic fabric of the East Trenton Community. Working together with the residents of East Trenton, we jumpstart neighborhood revitalization and community building.

The Neighborhood

The East Trenton neighborhood is technically in the North Ward of the City — bordered by Route One to the west, the Assunpink Creek to the east, Lincoln Avenue to the south and Mulberry Street to the north. Many features that shaped early development in the area, ironically, played a role in its subsequent decline. The neighborhood’s story is ongoing, with new chapters being written even now. But to write a new story it is important to understand history. Read on for an overview of East Trenton's ongoing history:
