Town Talk

A forum for Princeton residents to express opinions about local and national issues

Question of the Week:

“How do you feel about Princeton University’s plan for an arts and transit neighborhood that envelops portions of University Place and Alexander Street and the possibility of relocating the Dinky?”


“I don’t want it to compete with our beautiful downtown here, so I have concerns about that. Princeton’s downtown brings people to the community and brings the community together, so the possibility of changing it concerns me.”

Helen Rose, Franklin Avenue

“As an alumna, this is all very interesting to me. I can see where the University would really like to participate in the community, but I am not sure if they communicate that to the people who live here. I would have to find out more about the arts and transit neighborhood, but there could be pluses.”

Danielle Gordon, Nassau Street

“I am looking forward to a greater concentration of arts and theater venues in Princeton and I like the concept of a walking-friendly campus. As far as the Dinky, having it further from the center of town would make it less convenient for other people.”

Sandra Milevski, Mount Lucas Road


“I think that some of it sounds really good, especially the arts center. The Dinky I am not sure about. It is such an institution around here I am not sure that it should be moved. Maybe I am just old fashioned.”

Marilyn Abramson, Poe Road

“I think that it could be a new, interesting dynamic area of town that people might enjoy. The extra walk to the Dinky won’t be too difficult.”

Adrian Kreipke, with Bridgitte, Maple Street
