It’s a jungle out there and these furry mothers will do just about anything to protect their young.

By Sarah Emily Gilbert

Moms are the best, but not just the human sort. The animal kingdom is full of mothers who are ready to – quite literally – go out on a limb for their children. Between teaching their young to forage food, defend themselves against predators, and battle the elements, animal moms have a big job. In celebration of Mother’s Day, we rounded up some of the fiercest mamas in the animal kingdom. more

Sip Sangria and Margaritas at Mediterra.

The restaurant’s outdoor patio at the base of Palmer Square is the place to relax on balmy summer evenings. As darkness descends, the lights come on around the fountain, a popular and perfect spot for sipping Tony’s refreshing drinks and people-watching.

The northern Jersey town of Springfield has the feel of a typical upscale, leafy, east coast bedroom community with impressive homes, well-manicured lawns, and quiet neighborhoods.

But tucked into 474 acres in the northwestern part of town, off of Shunpike Road, stands one of the iconic sporting venues in the world, the Baltusrol Golf Club. more

Like The Garden Club of Princeton’s (GCP) wisteria that grows on Mercer Island, the older the organization gets, the more it blooms.  Founded in 1911 by Albertina Taylor Pyne, wife of Moses Taylor Pyne, the GCP’s Charter Members include prominent names such as Mrs. Grover Cleveland, Mrs. Allan Marquand, and Mrs. Bayard Stockton, among others.   more

Those in the know refer to it simply as the “AT.” In New Jersey it heads northeast along the highest ridges of the Kittatinny Mountains through Sussex and Warren counties and on through the Pochuck Valley into New York State. Parts of it can be discovered in High Point State Park, Stokes Forest State Park and the Delaware Water Gap National Recreation Area. more

The Princeton economist Angus Deaton seems almost bemused about winning the 2015 Nobel Prize in Economic Sciences. “I always think of what I’m doing as ‘tinkering’ to make something better—in the end you’ve got something that looks like a new machine but it started with a lot of stuff that other people had worked on and then the Nobel prize committee comes along and says ‘look what you’ve done!’” more

His Princeton diploma (class of 1908) was signed by Woodrow Wilson and a street in the tony Western Section of town is named for him. On the less decorous side, perhaps, is the fact that Gerard Barnes Lambert (1886-1967) is widely known as the “Father of Halitosis,” for his aggressive marketing of Listerine mouthwash. Good news for guardians of good taste (pardon the expression) is that Lambert’s daughter, Rachel Lowe Lambert Lloyd “Bunny” Mellon (1910-2014), was a great pal of Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis. more

At almost every training session of the Trenton Circus Squad, Zoe Brookes hears someone shout out the phrase that has come to be her favorite in the English language: “I did it!”

The executive director of this program based in the capital city’s historic Wireworks Factory, Brookes nods and smiles as a tween-aged girl, as if on cue, exults in those three words after mastering a challenging landing from a jump that started on a minitrampoline and ended on a stack of mats.  more

“I try to keep my mind on movement itself…” — kinetic sculptor George Rickey

Right now Princeton is a work in progress. From Avalon Bay to Arts and Transit, it’s an architectural fair—cynics might call it “architecture gone wild.” Whatever you think of it, transformation is the theme, at least until the buildings are standing, the design realized, manifested, ready to be inhabited and enjoyed and one day put between the covers of a book like Robert Spencer Barnett’s Princeton University and Neighboring Institutions (Princeton Architectural Press 2015).  more
