Crown Street, East Sydney

Crown Street is a street in the Sydney suburbs of Woolloomooloo, Darlinghurst and Surry Hills. The Surry Hills section is lined with restaurants and shops, as well as the former Crown Street Women's Hospital.

History[edit]

An electric tram service formerly ran down Crown Street from Oxford Street to Cleveland Street until its closure in the late 1950s.[1] The now-closed Crown Street Women's Hospital was once the largest maternity hospital in Sydney. It opened in 1893, and was closed in 1983.[2] The site has now been redeveloped as housing.
