We love walking the grounds of PSU. Generally well kept (lately some issues due to budget cutbacks) it feels like Europe with all the Gothic architecture. Especially pretty at night.

We have been here a dozen times for visits and continue to love it. Stunning buildings. Lovely layout of landscape. We have been in the chapel and the library (when you could enter as a member of the public; believe that is no longer true). Combined with a visit to the town makes a lovely day trip (1 1/2 hour drive) from NYC.

Actually a beautiful place to visit and photograph. Wonderful for black and white pics. Fantastic windows and rooftops, vines, and stairs.

Start your walking tour at the corner of Washington Road and prospect where the building of Woodrow Wilson international Institute. Attached pic 2 is instruction on parking on Prospect. Many dignitaries spoke here. Woodrow Wilson is the only Princeton graduate who became president of US. Walk west to Rabinowitz building. Brook Shield studied here. Turn south towards firestone library. The building may not look imposing. But, it has many floors below ground. Facing Firestone Library, the chapel is behind you. The stain glass, lighting fixtures and organs are famous. Turning back to the square, the statue of John Witherspoon. Heading east from the square, you’ll see art museum. Pictures show some of the events at the museum. Many princeton alumni donate or loan their collections to the museum as well. Heading east from the museum, you’ll see prospect house. This house used to be the university president’s residence. Now it is a dining facility. On top of their menu, it says this is where minds meet. Looking down from prospect house, is the formal garden. It is a year-around beauty. Further East is the student center one. Many state of the art displays gadgets and a cafe are inside. Turning north across Washington Avenue is another library with a infamous Frank Gehry designed wing entrance. Heading back towards campus and look for Richardson Auditorium. The event calendar in front shows the caliber of activities. Heading west to Nassau Street. You are in the center of town with many eateries.

Princeton University landmarks, park and historical buildings are among my favorite places to visit on a way from NY to PA. I'm not sure about winter time, but in Spring, Summer and Fall it's such an amazing place to spend time with your family or a group of people.
