There are many of us on the Coastside who wish to see Princeton continue to be a “place,” with it’s name on an official sign, as in the classic photo at the top of my blog. “Princeton,” the sign reads, “pop. 200.” That population number hasn’t changed much, closely matching the number of permanent residents there today.
There are many of us who wish to see Princeton-by-the-Sea retain its unique identity, not to be lost in suburban sameness. Not to be consumed by the big, hungry town to the south.
Yes, I am a romantic, but not the only romantic, and Princeton’s economy thrives on romance in every tone, shade and color.
What happened to the old Princeton sign?
