|The Palmer Square bronze
tiger created by renowned Brooklyn-born wildlife artist Charles R.
Knight (1874-1953) is decked out for the holidays. The tiger is
Princeton University's totem. Palmer Square, Princeton's handsome
collection of Colonial Revival-style shops, restaurants, offices and
residences was financed and built by Edgar Palmer, heir to a New Jersey
zinc fortune. Architect Thomas Stapleton completed the design in 1929
but the project was delayed until 1936 due to the Depression. It
wasn't fully completed until the 1980s.
