Thank you! The word cold was certainly in my mind over the last few weeks.
Princeton was incorporated as a township by an act of the New Jersey Legislature on April 9, 1838, from portions of West Windsor Township in Mercer County and Montgomery Township in Somerset County. Princeton Township has about 20,000 residents. My township, Montgomery Township, has five thousand more residents, is bigger (square miles) and is still considered a small rural town. I live on the border between the two townships.
There are nearby towns that share a Princeton zip code — West Windsor, Lawrenceville, Plainsboro, Hopewell, South Brunswick, Skillman, and Franklin. This makes Princeton appear bigger than it really is. Many out-of-towners confuse the zip code of Princeton — there are five of them — with the actual town. This makes Princeton sseem bigger than it actually is.
