Downtown: A vibrant community of shops, restaurants, Princeton Public Library, Arts Council, public gathering places, close proximity to the University and more. There is much located in downtown that keep residents centrally focused. Housing is comprised of apartments, single family houses and new construction townhomes and condominiums.
Jefferson-Moore: One of the older central neighborhoods in town. Both streets are wide with side walks and large shade trees. Jefferson and Moore streets are very popular for families with school aged children, as these two streets run between Community Park elementary school, the Princeton high school, and John Witherspoon middle school.
Tree Streets: The tree streets are made up of Chestnut, Linden, Spruce, Maple and Pine. These streets are close to the University at the eastern end of town. With the exception of Spruce, each runs directly off of Nassau Street and are populated with homes from the early 1900’s. Most are very close to the street, and many do not have garages. The tree streets are close to several new shops and restaurants that have sprung up at this end of town in the past few years.
Riverside: This neighborhood is located next to the lake at the eastern edge of town. It is a newer neighborhood than the more central sections of town. Most homes are ranches or split levels, that were very popular in the 1950’s when this end of town was established.
Western Section: Just west of downtown, but still mostly walkable, is a beautiful older section of large homes and wide boulevards. The two main streets that bisect this neighborhood, are Hodge Road and Library Place. Two former Presidents have lived in this neighborhood, Grover Cleveland and Woodrow Wilson.
