Princeton Apartments for Rent
Situated about halfway between Manhattan and Philadelphia, Princeton is a picture-perfect location – easy access to major East Coast cities while maintaining a rural, woodsy atmosphere. Princeton is probably best known as the quintessential college town – it is, after all, home to the Ivy League Princeton University, which dates back to 1756 and is one of only nine Colonial Colleges – those founded before the American Revolution.
After you rent an apartment in Princeton, be sure to stroll down Nassau Street, the main downtown avenue. It is lined with high-end boutiques and wonderful restaurants. Princeton University’s main gates open onto Nassau Street, just across from Nassau Hall, the university’s oldest building. Built sometime around 1756, it is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and is a US National Historic Landmark.
While the university is arguably the most famous landmark in Princeton, it isn’t the only landmark. Princeton is home to the beautiful Carnegie Lake, which is bordered by the Delaware and Raritan Canal State Park Trail. It is also home to Princeton Battlefield State Park, the location of a fierce battle during the Revolutionary War in 1777. The park features hiking trails, cross-country skiing, open lawns, the Princeton Battle Monument, and the Clarke House Museum.
