Camden is getting a $1 million grant to transform illegal dumping sites into spaces for public art.
The grant is part of "A New View," a project funded by Bloomberg Philanthropies, which was founded by former New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg.
The sites are along major transit corridors. In Camden, those include the PATCO high-speed rail line, the RiverLine light rail line and the Camden Greenway trail network.
