The Regional Planning Board meeting last week was packed by those with strong opinions about transit and transportation options in town. The overflow crowd had gathered to hear presentations proposing alternatives to the Dinky, the vehicle operating along the one-track rail line that connects Princeton to Princeton Junction, as well as statements advocating the preservation or augmentation of it.
Borough Council unanimously passed three resolutions at last weeks meeting dealing with revaluation. Council member Roger Martindell had proposed versions of the resolutions in a previous session.
What did people do before they could call 911 if something went wrong? How were fires fought at the turn of last century? How do you make bandages?

Paul Gauguin, from Noa Noa
One of the gloomier images in the catalogue accompanying the University Art Museum’s new exhibit, “Gauguin’s Paradise Remembered: The Noa Noa Prints,” is Paul Signac’s crayon sketch of rue Vercingétroix, where Paul Gauguin (1848-1903) had his last Paris studio. From the look of it, this could be among those streets Balzac finds “in as much disrepute as any man branded with infamy.” The name itself has a sinister music, a four-syllable sword-thrust; in fact it refers to a Gallic warrior whose “very name seemed to be made to generate terror,” according to the Roman historian Florian.
The maritime motifs proliferate in Michael Hollinger’s Red Herring, a murder mystery, film noir parody and romantic comedy all in one, currently playing at Theatre Intime.
Princeton Symphony Orchestra’s new Music Director Rossen Milanov announced his arrival this past weekend with a program of “Power, Passion and Grace.” The orchestra’s concert in Richardson Auditorium on Sunday afternoon included several works which embodied all three of those adjectives, but above all made clear that Mr. Milanov is proud of his musicians, and they are equally proud to be playing for him.
This location is unbelievable. Its a one-of-kind townhome community. I love to be able to sell a community I truly believe in.
Sharon Bloodgood, sales manager of The Residences At Palmer Square, is proud of her association with this new community. The elegant townhome and condominium community, which extends around Chambers Street, Paul Robeson Place, Hulfish and Witherspoon Streets, is now taking reservations. Stasse & Company in Pennington is the broker of record, and Minno & Wasko Architects & Planners were the designers.
