It's nice, but I wouldn't live there.

Went to Princeton High School back in the 2000s, I've worked in Princeton as well. If you're an out-of-towner, Princetonites will be sure to make it known. Try going to PHS from another town, you're treated like leper because you're not "from Princeton". Princeton is great if you like jay walking millennial college students who don't look both ways before crossing the street. Lyle Menendez, you know the 1/2 of the brothers who murdered their parents in California back in the 90s, went to Princeton University thanks to a hefty donation from the rich father Jose. But Princeton like to forget about that dirty little secret. A+ for crime? Is this serious? So I guess the Sex Money Murder Bloods retreated back to Trenton or are they still hanging out on John St by the hospital? Another dark secret of Princeton is the gang violence. Nothing made my mother happier than hearing about me being escorted to my bus sophomore year of high school with police holding large assault rifles due to the school being in lockdown over gang violence and threats. Or the gang graffiti that was tagged all over the high school and streets by the hospital. What about the group of Spanish youth who were violently attacked for their Halloween candy by gang members? How quickly people forget. If you like overpriced coffee (Small World is awful) and ticket happy meter readers, Princeton is the place for you! There are a lot of perks to this town if you can afford it, such as Mistral, Agricola Eatery, and Triumph Brewery. But for all things holy stay away from the Winberie's on Palmer Square unless you like college girls with their big generic Michael Kors bags shoved in your face. Want to live in a place like Princeton without the pretentiousness? Lambertville about 15 minutes down 95 is perfect.
