One Nassau Street


Known locally as the “old Town Topics Building,” the historic brick edifice at 4 Mercer Street is shown here in a pre-1914 vintage photograph when its address was One Nassau Street. How did the change of address come about? Read the story on page 7. Astounding as it seems, the building was moved 60 feet back from the road in 1914 when the War Memorial was erected and Mercer Street extended. (Courtesy of the Historical Society of Princeton)
