Town Talk

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

Question of the Week:

“What interests you about this rally and where do you enjoy biking or walking?” (Asked at bike rally in Hines Plaza on 5/10)


“I am hoping that it shows our local officials that there are lots of people interested in supporting biking and walking in town and not just driving. I try to walk and ride my bike as much as I can, to the shopping center, the library, Thomas Sweet’s ice cream; all of the important places.”

Audrey Chen, Linwood Circle

“I am interested in doing anything I can to promote bicycling and walking because we are a nation that is too dependent on automobiles. There are so many ways of saving the environment by taking trips that are five miles or less by using bicycles and feet or a combination of them. If the local officials see us here they are more likely to take our needs into account to make sure that conditions are safe for everyone and not just auto drivers. I like to bike in Somerset, Monmouth, Hunterdon, Pine Barrens, and certain places in Mercer.”

Dan Rappoport, Princeton Community Village

“I came here today because it is a great way to come together as a community and help the environment. I enjoy biking along the canal and I cycle to school most every day with a group of my friends. It is about ¾ of a mile.”

Louis Capon, Snowden Lane


“I am very interested in Princeton being a place where more people bike rather than drive so anything that causes people to get together and talk about biking and biking safety is a good thing. I enjoy biking and walking in the area around our house and also biking into town and along the towpath.”

Herb Mertz, Quarry Lane

“I enjoy biking and I travel around the general area to Cranbury, New Hope, Pennington, rides of 20 to 40 miles. My interest is in seeing safer methods developed for people who do ride bikes, particularly along roads like Cherry Valley Road.”

Simon Marchand, Montadale Drive
