Unfortunately I have to begin this post with an apology. I put many hours into taking these pictures, but unfortunately moved out of state before I could finish taking enough photos of every neighborhood. The Chambersburg district is scarcely represented here. Having said that, I believe I took enough pictures to give at least a taste of each section of Trenton. I tried to be as fair as possible and took pictures that present both the best and worst of the city. I also tried to focus more on the residential aspect of Trenton, for people who may be interested in relocating here.

Those are pretty nice pics. Usually when I go to Trenton I don't pass through many neighborhoods and only go downtown, so I don't know much about the city. I didn't know it had nice homes like that.

My Girlfriend lives there and I can only say that there is one scary place, and that's the part near the train station. I wouldn't be caught dead walking there at night, or even in the day time. They had high powered lights up there one time. Most of the homes were pretty much stuck together.

Thanks for posting these, the wife and I enjoyed seeing this part of NJ. It's a shame there aren't posts or websites detailing places in NJ with pictures like this! Would help me to better understand locations.

WOW!!! Some beautiful homes and others in total disrepair
Always warms my heart(NOT) to see shops with iron grates over their doors and windows...

I'm sure back in the day some of those neighborhoods were quite the place to live.

That's a common feature in most urban neighborhoods, known as a rowhome. My mother grew up in one in Chambersburg. Many examples of what nicely restored rowhomes look like can be found in the Mill Hill section of the city. Little by little the city is coming back, but its going to be a long road. In the meantime, see a show at Patriot's Theater, have a drink at the Mill Hill Saloon, or get a nice dinner at Settimo Cielo-you won't be dissapointed! I'm really anxious for the Trenton Devils to begin their first season at Sovereign Bank Arena myself.

Don't get me wrong, I really enjoyed my stay out there in Trenton/Hamilton(she lived on the border of both city/township) I liked the city overrall, there are just places that needed some fixing up. but it looks better than where I live at, which some people have compared to Trenton, but I highly doubt it. it could be that I am an outsider in Trenton, but I enjoyed that city alot

Wow, awesome pictures! My neighbor lived there years (30 - 40) ago, always tells me about how it used to be and the awesome houses. Shame to see some looking so bad. Hopefully people will come in and give them love, restoring those homes from years ago.
