Town Talk

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

Question of the Week:

“What do you think about the Palmer Square Post Office closing; what would you like to see in its place?”


Molly: “It’s a beautiful older Post Office and it’s a shame that it will be closing. We are big fans of the mail. We don’t want to see it go. I could see this as a community center.”

Elaina and Rosa: “A big JaZams store.”

— Molly Deaguiar with daughters Elaina and Rosa, Highland Park

“The Post Office building has been an institution and it’s sad that its closing. I would like to see a business that is local and does not sell goods produced in China or overseas.”

— Corrie Sirkin, Princeton

“With the evolution of email and bill paying via the internet, I understand why they are going out of business. It is sad we are losing the excitement of mail arriving from a pen pal. We could see a dog friendly place. In Europe there are places you can go with your dog and hang out.”

— Ernie, Abbie (dog), and Susan Sirkin, South Brunswick


“I would like to see a municipal building like an extension to the library, or move Borough Hall to Palmer Square.”

— Steve Doran, Princeton

“It’s horrible that it’s closing but it comes down to people not using it. The building should be used for something else for the public service; it shouldn’t be a commercial bar or retail store that will help a capitalist. It should be something that will benefit the community.”

Dawson: “A place where you can play basketball.”

Sophia: “It should be a library and a science studio.”

— Panna Sharma with Dawson (left) and Sophia, Princeton

“It’s a historic place, it’s unfortunate. I think that it should be used for the public interest. It is such a nice, large building located in the center of town; it should be used for community events. It could be a private enterprise.”

— Mario Russo, Princeton
