For the brief (one and half years) that I lived in Princeton, I enjoyed it very much.

I lived in Plainsboro and worked in Princeton for 2 years...I loved it. There are some great family owned resturants in the area and very pleasant living. The main reason why I moved was job opportunity and it was a little too slow for me at that time (I could appreciate an area like that now), so I moved closer to NYC.

Princeton is a lovely town. Its home to Princeton University. Its town has cute shops , bookstores, etc.
It is also quite expensive for housing.

Princeton would be a place I'd leave Scranton for in a heartbeat if it didn't cost $3,000,000,000 for a typical in-town home. LOL!

This really isn't true...Some of the HUGE victorian homes, on Cleveland Lane, yes, but most of the little houses, like the one Einstein lived in, are FAR less than $3,000,000.

Interesting..............

Einsteins' former home in Princeton, 112 Mercer St, is a modest Greek Revival style home.
Tax assessed value.....792K.
Currently owned by the Institute For Advanced Study.

Princeton is a great town, although not affordable for most. Great theater and restaurants. Crime is evident if you look closely. Secluded from highways. Good place to bicycle around.

Princeton does have a higher crime rate than you would expect, but overall, it is still a pretty safe place. Don't walk in certain parts of town late at night, etc.......

Housing is pricey. Taxes are equally high. But if you look up Route 27 North or down Route 206 South and don't mind driving a bit, you can still get the addy but a reduced tax burden.

Nassau Street is great for people watching and for strolling at any time of the year. The restaurants are usually quite good. Ones I like in-town are Medi Terra, Bluepoint Grill, and Alchemist and Barrister. There are also a few that you have to drive to but are worth it like Big Fish, Ruth's Chris, and PF Chang's. Most of the shops are elevated in their pricing, but that goes with the name.

What can I say about Princeton? (Or PU as us RU grads like to call it.) It's a fine institution of learning.

Jobs are relative to the sector you are looking for. Several of the medical communications firms in the area have been laying people off due to the downturn in pharma. There are a number of vacancies and available office space in Forrestal Village and Carnegie Center. Both are office parks just off Route 1 South.

Hope this helps somewhat.
