Overview

Take a pictorial tour of Princeton, New Jersey, and experience the charm and uniqueness of its history and diverse architecture. Princeton represents the quintessential small-town America that has all the features for success: history, architecture, premier education, shopping, and ideal neighborhoods. The town has lured scholars, scientists, statesmen, and writers from around the world. Many of them, including two United States presidents, have made Princeton their home: James Madison, Woodrow Wilson, Grover Cleveland, Albert Einstein, Aaron Burr, Robert Oppenheimer, T.S. Eliot, and F. Scott Fitzgerald are a few of the notable figures the town can lay claim to. This book explores the landmark sites where history was made and greatness launched, and catalogs the city's rich architectural heritage. The text provides a readable, historic survey and more than 300 beautiful color images make this an invaluable keepsake for all who have fallen in love with Princeton.
