Second Edition

Experience the layers of history and diverse architecture of Princeton, New Jersey, in this narrated photographic tour of more than 200 locations where history was made and greatness launched. Founded before the American Revolutionary War, this quintessential small town has lured scholars, scientists, statesmen, and writers from around the world. Many of them, including two US presidents, have made Princeton their home. James Madison, Woodrow Wilson, Grover Cleveland, Albert Einstein, Aaron Burr, T. S. Eliot, and F. Scott Fitzgerald are a few of the notable figures the town claims. This second edition includes landmarks such as the Princeton train station, the Andlinger Center for Energy and the Environment (designed by Tod Williams and Billie Tsien Architects), and the Arts Council of Princeton, by architect Michael Graves. A readable historical survey, it is a keepsake for all who have fallen in love with Princeton.
