Palmer Square’s Speaker Series Provides a Unique Cultural Amenity for Discerning Residents

Palmer Square Townhomes Exterior SMALLPRINCETON, NJ, – From respected artists to renowned experts on such relevant subjects as the JOBS Act, Crowdfunding and the turmoil in Russia, the Speaker Series launched earlier this year at The Residences at Palmer Square in downtown Princeton has provided residents with personal access to dynamic and thought-provoking authorities in a private, intimate setting.

Sponsored by Palmer Square Management, which is developing The Residences at Palmer Square directly across Nassau Street from Princeton University, the Speaker Series has engaged, enlightened and entertained residents with profound insights and compelling discussions on a broad scope of issues.

“Palmer Square is surrounded by a tremendous wealth of intellect, business acumen and artistic talent, and we wanted to harness those resources in an exclusive cultural and intellectual forum for our residents,” notes David Newtown, Vice President of Palmer Square Management. “We’re catering to a discerning clientele that appreciates a sophisticated urban atmosphere and cultured environment, and events at Palmer Square like the Speaker Series resonate with them and allow residents to be a part of something truly special.”

The Speaker Series, which is hosted in one of the expansive residences at Palmer Square across from the Arts Council of Princeton, kicked off in February with Our House Your House Pop-Up Gallery which attracted an array of artists from Princeton, New York and Philadelphia. The March installment, Turmoil in Ukraine and Russia’s Uncertain Future, featured a lecture from David Satter, a senior fellow of the Foreign Policy Research Institute and the Hudson Institute and one of the world’s most prominent commentators on Russia. Local Princetonian, Chris Tyrell, headlined the May event, “Revolution in Capital Formation.” Tyrell, a JOBS Act expert and national Crowdfunding leader, addressed how the JOBS Act has fundamentally changed the way businesses of all sizes will raise capital and the effect it will have on businesses globally and in Princeton.

“It’s been a fascinating and informative compilation of topics,” Mr. Newton points out. “We will continue to look for new and creative ways to provide interesting and relevant experiences for our residents.”

The success of the Speaker Series speaks to Princeton’s unique and sought-after balance of intimate, small-town living and an internationally-acclaimed offering of education, arts and culture that is typically reserved for a much larger city. While most associate Princeton’s educational prowess with the namesake university, the area also offers a long list of renowned secondary prep schools, including The Hun School, Princeton Day School and Lawrenceville School.

Significant works of arts and world-class entertainment and cultural offerings can be found at the McCarter Theatre and Princeton University Art Museum. In addition, Princeton offers convenient commutes to New York and Philadelphia via NJ TRANSIT service.

For upscale dining and shopping, Palmer Square features more than 40 brand-name stores, boutiques, restaurants and specialty food shops, as well as the historic Nassau Inn — all ideally situated in a pedestrian-friendly setting.
