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

Notified About

  • 540 Ewing Street Princeton, New Jersey - Princeton North

    According to Town Topics, 570 families in Princeton should have received a check for $2500 as a result of a contribution from Princeton University for property tax relief. Our family did not receive this money even though the issuing institution, the Community Foundation of New Jersey admits we were fully qualified to have received the money. We were advised that all funds have been distributed but unfortunately our name was not on the list issued by the State. We were told "better luck next year" in a letter from CFNJ. It is difficult to believe our family was the only one so affected.

    please alert SeeClickFix if you have any experience with this problem. thanks

  • 150 Loomis Ct Princeton, NJ, 08540, USA - Princeton North
    The circle at Loomis Court is in deplorable condition, especially on the northern side. It is covered with ruts and potholes. It is unsightly and a safety hazard. The problem began several years ago when Princeton's contractor paved the circle during a rain storm. It was never repaved properly at that time and has become worse. The patches never corrected the basic problem. Neighboring Hickory Court, which was identical to Loomis when it was built in the 1950's, was recently refurbished with what appears to be Belgian block stone and looks very well maintained. Why is the circle at Loomis such a mess and why wasn't it improved when Hickory was? ? Thank you for your attention to this matter.
  • 196 Bayard Lane Princeton, New Jersey - Princeton North
    There are blocked storm drains on Bayard Lane and along Route 206 at the curve across from Princeton Bank. There are large pools of standing water from the last storm in multiple spots between Bayard Lane and Route 206. More rain is on the way and I expect we will have flooding if the drains are not cleared of debris. Help, please! Thanks.

  • Campbell Hall Princeton, New Jersey - Princeton

    This following article was published in Princeton's Daily Princetonian, and I would like to make the news grow for some change to happen, including State involvement.

    --Pooping in the shower is Princeton’s new normal: A letter to the heads of Princeton University--

    Imagine a crowded living space with bad plumbing, old hallways, and exposed pipes, where toilets overflow and make an unsanitary disaster, where human feces are found in the shower, urine found in trash cans, shower curtains removed as pranks, and then people of color and people of unprivileged socioeconomic backgrounds have to clean it all up.

    You don’t have to imagine it to believe it. This place exists here at Princeton University, the number one school in the country.

    Campbell Hall has been subject to various events in the only men’s bathroom of the entire hall. There is only one bathroom that the entire hall has to share. Three toilets, three sinks, and four showers. A bathroom that constantly needs maintenance and cleaning because of its heavy usage, and therefore leaves a burden to facilities to have to constantly maintain the bathrooms in a decent state. People may say, “Oh well, you just got a bad hall, you’ll draw into a better one next year,” but shouldn’t Princeton be embarrassed to have students living like this in their first or second year, especially since there is so much discrepancy in quality of dorms between one hall and another? It is unfair that some Princeton students get to reside in dorms that approach hotel-like quality while other students have to face situations like these.

    This bathroom concern ridicules University Facilities workers, taking away the fact that they are human beings. Nowhere in their job description does it state that they regularly have to pick up human feces from the ground. It is ridiculous for anyone to have to clean human feces on almost a week-by-week basis off the shower floors. Waking up incredibly early in their homes, about an hour away from Princeton, before the sun comes out and arriving to campus to have to face feces is completely unacceptable.

    Facilities does an extraordinary job of maintaining the hall clean, but it has reached the point where even the best of cleaners can’t really change the appearance. I admire the work of Facilities to an enormous extent, and I cannot emphasize how valuable they are in this community.

    Who knew that at a school like Princeton, Campbell residents would have to be interrogated by the staff of Rockefeller College to figure out who created this mess? Shouldn’t a school like Princeton already have this issue resolved? Even if the school has something like seminars or talks to preach cleanliness and how to keep our facilities safe, the problem isn’t about which student is doing this and who might be behind it all, but rather how the current conditions of the hall have lead to this. Having conditions like these make it seem normal to be able to commit these horrendous acts. Just like it’s dirty in the hallways, it makes anyone think that they can do the same in the bathroom or elsewhere in the hall. It’s ridiculous that it’s already become the “normal” thing to be accustomed to these bathroom disasters. The people who are committing the crime are equally as guilty as the University culture that allows this to happen in the first place.

    The situation at Campbell Hall, at its core, is a public health issue. Toilets clog and overflow with feces, paper towels, plastic bags, and urine, covering the entire bathroom floor and staying like this for an entire weekend. Feces is found on the shower floors and stays like that for nearly a day; even if it is cleaned up, microscopic traces of feces still remain and are unsafe for those who shower barefoot. Toilet seats are incredibly dirty to the point where you cannot sit on them, even if you wipe them down. There is no ventilation in the bathroom as there are no open windows, and as the bathroom is located in the basement, there is barely any air circulation from the bathroom door.

    How can Princeton be okay with housing students here? Even if there were no bathroom problems, the building itself is incredibly old and not renovated, with exposed pipes that may be a hazard, unfinished painted walls, sinking staircases, only one water fountain for an entire hall, an old common room with limited resources, no laundry room, exposed wires, chipping paint, a dirty appearance, leaking pipes, and water damage, among other things.

    I demand action and a response from the University to change this and resolve this situation — not by interrogating students on who’s responsible but by renovating the hall to avoid all this in the first place.

    The University and students alike should be outright embarrassed to have a hall like this on campus.

  • 276 Mt Lucas Rd Princeton, NJ 08540, USA - Princeton North

    Just wonder how we can push PSEG restore our area as promised last night 11:15 pm.

    Now, they pushed to 03/10 11:45 PM, this ridiculous and it seems to me they don't pay enough attention on us at all !

    With most of Princeton residents have electricity, seems we are the only ones in town suffering now.

    I was on the phone 2 hours and can't get through to PSEG

    Now we need to find a place to take shower ...
