Princeton arts center talks get revived

    Late in January, Princeton University and the two Princetons – borough and township – found themselves in a kerfuffle over just where to build the new $300 million arts center.

    The university prez got visibly upset during talks with town officials over a “go-no-go” decision for the center.

    According to the Times of Trenton, the friction comes from the Dinky, the aptly named rail station that serves a short spur line used by Princetonians to get to New Jersey Transit’s main north-south corridor.  It seems the plans called for moving the station a few hundred feet farther from the town center.
