Overheard: Princeton, Palo Alto, and Berkeley
Recently overheard from a friend of mine who just started his PhD in particle theory at Princeton:
Wow. Princeton town makes Palo Alto seem like Berkeley.
Of course, this is something of a loaded statement and can mean a range of things (which is what I found delightful about it), but he went on to explain:
It’s completely and utterly useless! At least Palo Alto has a Longs and Walgreens. Here there isn’t even a convenience store or anything. Just expensive restaurants and designer clothing stores.
He goes went on to explain that there is a large commercial center a short car trip away.
Good luck to Josh at Princeton!
