It’s New to Us by Jean Stratton



BEST BARGAINS: “Every weekday, we have 200 new items on display. There is tremendous turnover.” Katie McFarlane, assistant manager of Greene Street Consignment, is shown with a never-worn Banana Republic black dress. Also available in other colors, it is $18 at the new consignment shop.

Recycling is one of the best things we can do for the environment, and this is true in clothing as well as in so many other areas. Now, you can be “green” by visiting Greene Street Consignment at 162 Nassau Street.


HISTORIC INN: We wanted to honor the building. People really want to have an environment like ours and the food to go with it.” Maria and Evan Blomgren, new owners of the Rocky Hill Inn, Eatery & Tavern, are very proud of their contemporary American cuisine with French and Italian influences and the opportunity to offer it in this historic building.

It dates to 1745, when it received its first “tavern license”; much later, in the 1930s, it was home to many reporters during the Lindbergh Trial, which took place in Flemington. There weren’t many hotels in the area, and the inn was near Hopewell, where the kidnapping took place. After World War II, it no longer functioned as an inn, focusing on food instead. It also served as a filming site for scenes in the 1994 movie, I.Q., featuring Walter Matthau, who played Albert Einstein.
