Princeton University is across the street from the Book Festival, I've been there a number of times, close to where I live. Great architecture on campus, plus The Princeton University Art Museum has a great collection.
Albert Einstein taught at Princeton. I went on an excellent architecture tour this past year through Princeton, this is the house where Einstein lived from 1935-1955
Nassau Hall is the central building at Princeton. I learned that the U.S. Capitol was moved here for a short time in 1783. Yep, I'm a history geek.
