West Windsor, NJ

Where to begin?

Over the course of nearly 300 hundred years, several 18th century hamlets and villages blossomed into the community of West Windsor. The area has developed from a largely agrarian region to one of both community and 21st century technology. People familiar with the area will have heard of some of West Windsor’s neighborhoods, like Princeton Junction, Grover’s Mill and Dutch Neck. Today West Windsor brings all of its neighbors together through
arts, culture and recreation in beautifully maintained parks.

West Windsor’s 25 square miles are home to approximately 30,000 residents. Not far from Princeton, and indeed home to some of the University’s property, West Windsor is famous for its busy, small train station at Princeton Junction. Connected to Princeton by a small train line, known as the Dinky, Princeton Junction allows Princetonians to travel along the NJ transit and Amtrak lines. On quieter weekends, Princeton Junction becomes a popular farmers’ market, complete with live entertainment and food trucks.
