Princeton, NJ (Consolidation of former Princeton Township and Princeton Borough)

Notified About

  • 29 Cuyler Road Princeton, New Jersey - Princeton North

    It is almost endearing that Princeton has contracted with Lightning McQueen to repave Cuyler and Dempsey. Mr McQueen has repeated the job he did in the movie "Cars". I hope Princeton will do what Radiator Springs did and make him scrape off what he pooped down and do a proper job.

    All joking aside, the new top layer stops about 1-2ft from the curb, forming a nice ridge ready to trip up bike riders. This is not safe, I hope you fix this asap.

    I understand that the idea of domestic quiet, that we should, within the confines of our homes, be freed from the noise, the hustle-and-bustle of the crowd, is a novel right, one which is nowhere truly secured nor even fully affirmed. Yet, all this being said, the Say Cheez Band must be stopped. Night after night, after a day of toil, all I hope for is some respite, some safeguarded peace, perhaps to read, watch a movie, or sleep early. Yet, as regularly as the moon waxes and wanes, I hear it, outside my window, those simple power chords, that not quite in-tune voice, and it is a cover band, sure as day, charmlessly hammering away some tune unknown to me but apparently much beloved by the legions of baby-boomers lined up to soak in the unfettered noise like it is the healing waters of Lourdes. Yet for me there is no alleviation, the rangle-jangle covers provide no palliative care for my quarantine-addled mind; no, it aggravates the issue, inflames it, it splits open mental sores and sets my mind a-light. I have lived in Princeton as if it were the quiet, sleepy, suburban town I was told it was, I have paid heed to these strictures about noise, cleanliness, presentation. So, to face a rebuke like this, it is soul-shattering. Please enforce the noise complaint laws, please don't let the band play so late. I want quiet, I want rest. I know many are going stir-crazy, but this is not the solution, this is merely a new problem.
  • 201 Witherspoon St Princeton, New Jersey - Princeton
    Thank you Princeton for removing the old storm drains with slits parallel to the road: the ones that were effective bicycle tire traps!
    There is one left in front of 201 Witherspoon Street: could you please replace it with the nice new ones with short holes? Thanks!

    Many potholes need to be fixed on Witherspoon St in Princeton
  • 152 Nassau St Princeton, NJ, 08542, USA - Princeton

    I am filing this under Other because Graffiti is not an option (but I hope you'll consider adding that!)

    I'm happy to upload more photos but I think if the responsible department will just walk from Dohm Alley through the parking area, back of D'Angelos, up Tulane and the to the corner of Nassau and Vendeventer, you'll see that the CBD is attracting much more tagging. Some of the tags have been here for over 12 months.

  • 39 Witherspoon St Princeton, NJ, 08542, USA - Princeton
    For the past week there has been insanely loud drilling and construction noise that begins around 10:30PM and often goes as late as 4AM. The work is being done on Witherspoon St., but can be clearly heard - through CLOSED windows - two streets away. It is an extreme instance of noise pollution that many other people who also live in the area have noted. We have all called Princeton PD, who say that there is nothing they can do as the work has an "emergency permit". If it is an "emergency", why is the work ONLY being done late-night? I frequently walk by the area throughout the day and there is no progress during daylight hours. It is an irresponsible and unacceptable amount of noise that fully disturbs all who live in the vicinity - we and our children need to be able to sleep (before 4 AM!) in order to go to work and school. It's egregious, and I will be following up in every manner possible until it ceases. Thank you.

  • 652 Princeton Kingston Rd Princeton, New Jersey - Princeton North

    The crosswalk at Princeton Kingston Road and Roper Road (near 652 Princeton Kingston Rd) is on a blind corner, cars coming from the east cannot see pedestrians trying to cross. Often times, if a car sees the pedestrian and stops, other cars will go around almost hitting the pedestrian. I have seen/experienced this multiple times. I have counted at least 20 people who use this crosswalk in the morning/evening rushes. This is dangerous for both pedestrians and drivers.

    I propose adding a flashing signal for pedestrian safety and driver awareness.

  • 126-198 Quaker Rd Princeton, NJ, 08540, USA - Princeton
    Hello, I know this is not Princeton's jurisdiction but this issue does greatly impact Princeton residents. With Quaker Rd. will be closed indefinitely, the Provinceline/Mercer Rd intersection has become very heavily used. Often, traffic gets very backed up on Mercer just north of Provinceline because so many people are now turning left there. I've seen many, many people run red lights rather than get stuck in a 3rd or 4th cycle of the light. Is there any way our officials could speak with the Lawrenceville (West Windsor?) jurisdiction about putting in a left turn signal at this intersection? Thank you!
  • 45 Hawthorne Ave Princeton, NJ, 08540, USA - Princeton
    There is a large maple tree in front of #45 Hawthorne Avenue that seems to have now completely died. It has no new buds or leaves this spring—just some bits of last season’s dead leaves. This tree is on Princeton town-owned land, between the sidewalk and the street. This tree has been slowly dying for some years, during which time it has caused significant damage due to falling limbs: A falling limb broke the electric cable to #45 a few years ago; another limb broke the telephone wire to #47 a few years before that. We are concerned that, as a dead tree, it will be still more dangerous. This tree needs urgent examination by the arborist and then, presumably, cutting down. Thank you.

    Herrontown Ln Princeton, NJ, 08540, USA - Princeton
    Indeed I understand that Herrontown Lane is a private street but our sense is the damage street spots are in part caused by the machinery and vehicles operated by Princeton and of course the USPS Vehicles, the Trash and Recycle vehicles, the UPS, Fed Ex, Lawn Maintaince vehicles, contractor vehicles and delivery vehicles delivering lumber and furniture. We have three potholes that need your attention.
    1. On the corner on Herrontown Lane where you turn right to go to the lower part of the lane. This is the worst spot. About three feet by two feet and two inches deep. Every truck making that turn makes this worst plus the flow of water during storms. Every vehicle that make that turn can do damage to their tires or their car.
    2. If you go straight instead of turning right to the lower part of Herrontown Lane about 125 feet there is a place where three of us neighbors put our branches and tree trimmings. In front of that pile of goods which is usually filled is damage of what your plow has done to the street. It is about three feet by three feet. One layer of asphalt deep.
    3. In front of 95 Herrontown Lane another spot in need of simple asphalt patching.
    4. At the very least there are a few spots that need attention on the road. On your way into the street you will see things that should be patched before winter. At this time not a horrible hole to navigate around. We think it is a patching job taking no more than an hour of your crew's time but in the long run it would save wear on the cars and trucks that use this often. Thanks

    52 Spruce St Princeton Boro, NJ, 08542, USA - Princeton
    The condition of Spruce Street is unacceptable. This is work that should have been done a year ago, but was delayed due to corruption on part of Princeton Township. Construction was approved in the state of NJ months ago. Yet, nothing is getting done on Spruce St. Just potholes and trucks parked there doing nothing. Are you waiting for school to start and we have an onslaught of buses and cars around town to close the road?
