  • Princeton University Museum extended the hours for the final days of the "Cezanne and the Modern" exhibit. The show will close on January 4th so this is really the last opportunity to see some of these timeless masterpieces! With exception of Christmas Day and New Year's Day, the museum will stay open from 10:00 am to 5:00 pm on weekdays and 10:00 am to 6:00 pm on weekends.

    As an avid art-lover and former art historian, I highly recommend this show. You will have a very rare opportunity to see many of the lesser-known but still exceptional works by Degas, Manet, Modigliani, Van Gogh, and Cezanne himself. All the pieces come from the Pearlman Collection, which is one of the finest single family collections. If you have not see it so far - wait no longer! What a great treat for the end of the year!

  • Let's say you are studying at Princeton University and you want an easy and healthy way to get around campus, and around town. You can always walk since Princeton is a great walking town. But now there is another great alternative - the bicycle. According to our community paper, Town Topics, Zagster is a bike-sharing company founded in Philadelphia and now headquartered in Cambridge, Massachusetts. It has just launched the first bike-sharing program with Princeton University.

    The covered bike stand at the new Dinky train station houses ten bikes available for rent. For an annual $20 membership fee, both University members and Princeton residents will be able to rent bikes by the hour. Free for the first two hours, the rate is $2 per hour thereafter. Another wonderful reason to live in Princeton!

    No, I am not talking about the New York City Marathon, but the Princeton 1/2 Marathon that is on for Sunday, November 2nd! It should be a great event because not only will the weather be crisp (perhaps too crisp but that is out of everyone's control), the route is scenic and historic and totally Princeton! The start time is 7:00 a.m. and will begin and finish on Paul Robeson Place. Even Mayor Lempert will be there to give out awards. It's the place to be on Sunday!
  • Carnegie Lake is a man-made body of water created in 1906 as a result of the construction of a dam. Yes, a dam. That is how Alexander Leitch describes the creation of Carnegie Lake in his book "A Princeton Companion" published in 1978. According to the book, having built a number of lochs in Scotland, Andrew Carnegie, the Scottish American steel maker and philanthropist, agreed to finance the creation of Carnegie Lake at the behest of two Princeton graduate brothers, who wished to provide a better place for rowing for University students than had existed at the time.

    The construction of a dam at Kingston impounded the "confluence of Stony Brook and the Millstone River, producing a sheet of water three and a half miles long and 800 feet across at its widest point." Voila - Carnegie Lake, which was formally presented by Andrew Carnegie on December 5, 1906, along with President Woodrow Wilson, to enthusiastic response. Because Carnegie's gift also involved the purchase of hundreds of acres adjacent to the lake, the University was given invaluable room for development.

    This is one of the most lovely lake views in the area! The lake is enjoyed by many. Just uploaded a photo, take a look!

    Are you thinking about retiring in Princeton? Well, here is some good news. Princeton just received the World Health Organization's (WHO) designation of "age friendly community.". According to the WHO website, the age-friendly cities and communities designated by WHO all have implemented measures to better meet the needs of older people. What did WHO look for in making its designation? The environment, transport, housing, social participation, respect and social inclusion, civic participation and employment, communication, and community support and health services of the communities designated.

    Too many shops, boutiques and restaurants to mention as my favorites in this Palmer Square area....but I will name a few that I most frequent. There is a variety of dining for all taste buds, from the Mediterranean styles of Mediterra, (and it's cozy outdoor seating), MoCMoC's quaint style of Japanese cuisine, to casual eats, such as Princeton's Soup and Sandwich Company.

    There are many bars that have a great social vibe such as the Alchemist & Barrister, Winberie's and the Yankee Doodle Tap Room located at the historic Nassau Inn. So many quaint coffee spots like Infini-T Cafe, where they have a wonderful Ethiopian French press coffee that will keep you moving for hours. This wonderful square has everything you need for a great day of fun.

    Shop for new style trends, vintage or classic, from Brooks Brothers, Ann Taylor, J Crew, to Zastra, Urban Grace and much more. Then, settle back and relax while having an assortment of delicious ice cream delights from the Halo Pub or Thomas Sweet.

    So much to do....so little time. Come and enjoy this wonderful location in this great city of Princeton.

    I love downtown Princeton and all it has to offer. But parking can be a problem, so here are a few tips that might help!

    1. Take advantage of the many public lots around town - they will ultimately cost you less than the parking meters and they are strategically located near the best sights and restaurants.
    2. If you park in a spot with a meter, make sure you park between the lines - yes there are lines. I recently received a ticket for parking outside of the lines set for the parking spot.
    3. If you plan to use a meter, make sure you have plenty of quarters! A nickel will get you maybe five minutes of time. And pennies are not even possible to use anymore.
    4. If the weather is good, and you like to walk, it helps to know that there are some side streets with free parking - you just have to find a spot and the parking is usually only on one side of the street. Moore and Chestnut are examples. But some streets like Jefferson, require permit parking, so avoid those.
    5. Finally, do not be reluctant to visit Princeton because of the parking. It's a great walking city and you should just grab the first spot you can, park and enjoy!

    On January 3, 1777, these local woods and fields saw one of the Revolutionary War battles that helped turn the tide in favor of the American Troops. During this battle, American troops under General George Washington surprised and defeated the British. Coming just 10 days after George Washington's surprise attack in Trenton, after his famous night crossing of the Delaware River, the Battle of Princeton gave Washington his first victory against the British on the field. The battle extended over a mile away to the College of New Jersey (now Princeton University).
    The Clark Family House, built by Thomas Clark in 1772, was the field hospital for American and British soldiers and was where General Mercer past away after trying to recover from bayonet wounds for 9 days.
    The house contains period furniture and Revolutionary War exhibits and the park often hosts historical reenactments and education events. On May 24, 2014 there will be a visit from "George Washington" who will tell stories of his battles and answer questions.
