In the words of Junot Diaz, It’s Where All of New Jersey Comes Together

Whether made from Brazilian hardwood or recycled soda bottles, chances are a boardwalk will be making contact with your feet in the coming months. Boardwalks are about mingling: people-to-people, of course, but also a place where the scent of sauerkraut and mustard meets the sea air; the screams from carnival rides mingle with the crashing surf; and the steady rumble of pedestrians, cyclists and skateboarders overlaps with the serenity of those sitting on benches.  more

Lindbergh Grandaughter

By Anne Levin

During the summer of Kristina Lindbergh’s 14th year, she spent a week with her famous grandparents, Charles and Anne Morrow Lindbergh, at their home in Switzerland. While she has pleasant recollections of the visit, the eldest of the famous couple’s grandchildren distinctly remembers being captive for at least one of her grandfather’s lectures. more

There’s no questioning Princeton’s commitment to environmental preservation and conservation.   The town is full of bicyclists, pedestrians, and other eco-friendly modes of transportation. There are several health-conscious supermarkets and farm-to-table restaurants and shops.  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

The many advantages of bicycling for recreation and as a mode of transport have become hot topics for Princeton residents in recent years with active members of groups such as Princeton Future, Walkable Princeton, and the Princeton Bicycle and Pedestrian Advisory Committee promoting improvements such as dedicated bicycle lanes. Recently recognized by the League of American Bicyclists as a bicycle friendly community, Princeton has long had bicycling enthusiasts. In the 1970s, landscape architect Henry Arnold was foremost among them, earning the moniker “Mr. Bike” for his advocacy of two wheels over four.

Today, it’s not uncommon for a female musician to be the sole talent driving a performance. Many female artists have achieved stardom without the support of back-up singers or traveling bands. In Cynthia Gooding’s time, however, a woman on stage with only her guitar for company, was an anomaly.

Gooding, who lived in Princeton and Kingston from 1964 until her death in 1988, grew up in Rochester, Minnesota. In the 1930s, at the start of her teenage years, this midwestern girl moved to Mexico City, where her love of music came to fruition. more

Ralph Schoenstein (1933-2006), a longtime Princeton resident, is remembered as a Renaissance man who brought excitement and passion to all that he pursued. An author, humorist, and beloved NPR commentator, Schoenstein grew up in Manhattan, the son of the Pulitzer Prize winning newspaper editor Paul Schoenstein. His first book, The Block (1960), written after he graduated from Columbia University, is a memoir of his childhood, including daily interactions with seven friends, all of whom lived around West 78th Street before World War II. more

Today, Brian Williams is considered the epitome of the modern newsman/commentator. News legend John W. Chancellor (1927-1996) was the man to watch and the face of NBC’s Nightly News from 1970 until 1982. Chancellor represented American media across the globe. A foreign correspondent in Vienna, London, Moscow and Brussels, he kept the American public informed on the developing European Common Market. more

Still known to many in Princeton as the “old Town Topics building,” the imposing 19th-century brick edifice at 4 Mercer Street was restored by its owner, Princeton University, in 2013 and will see new use as apartments for faculty and staff on the second and third floors and office space on the first floor. The building had been empty since the Town Topics newspaper moved to its new location on Witherspoon Street in 2007. more
