Neighborhood Association Sites
- Old Mill Hill Society - Mill Hill is Trenton's best neighborhood. I can't think of a neighborhood that I've either lived in or heard of that does more for its size. There are some interesting real estate opportunities left in the neighborhood for the adventurous.
- Berkeley Square - Trenton's Victorian neighborhood. This is where the grand houses in Trenton were at the turn of the century.
- Hillcrest - (broken link) Single family homes in the western part of Trenton.
- Hiltonia - Trenton's most suburban neighborhood is large single family homes built mostly in the '50s. Some of the homes are very grand indeed.
- Glen Afton - A mixed bag of residential architecture situated between the river and the Deleware Canal. One of Trenton's nice neighborhoods.
- The Island - (broken link) Formerly the site of vacation homes on the Deleware river, this neighborhood can have the feel of a resort area with screened in porches overlooking the river
- Villa Park - A modest area of Trenton that has great home values.
- Cadwalader Heights - stately homes in a neighborhood that was laid out by Frederick Law Olmsted as he designed Cadwalader Park.
- Trenton Council of Civic Associations - the umbrella organization for all of Trenton's civic groups.
are a few good sources for becoming familiar with the downtown:
Trulia - This is a great real estate site (as opposed to all the other terrible ones). Trulia provides very detailed data down to the neighborhood level for Trenton. There are some crime and education stats. There are also maps showing neighborhood boundaries and for sale real estate locations. This site has some of the features I was hoping to add to trentonlofts and now just may not need to.
Downtown Association - TDA serves as the organizing force for the
downtown commercial district.
JazzTrenton - Site run by the Disciples of Jazz which features music at The Candlelight Lounge.
Smiles - Promotes and invents activities for kids in Trenton.
