of New Jersey
. It is on the Delaware River
. There used to be a lighted sign
shining on the Delaware
saying Trenton Makes, The World Takes
If it weren't for the state capitol, there might not be much to Trenton--it has the same problems other urban areas in the state have--poverty, crime, etc. Even the governor doesn't live there--the governor's mansion is actually near Princeton.
It's a shame--Trenton's an historically significant city with some cool architecture.
