EMC Square

In the course of reading an intriguing new book by neuro-ophthalmologist Frederick Lepore, Finding Einstein’s Brain, I learned of the clever naming of an idyllic patch of land  in 2005 by the city of Princeton, New Jersey, in honor of one of its most celebrated residents.

EMC Square

Einstein never obtained a driver’s license, and relished the daily walk to and from his home on Mercer Street to Princeton’s Institute for Advanced Study with his colleague, Kurt Godel.  A proud immigrant and independent thinker, Einstein relished his American citizenship – something worth celebrating on this Day of Independence.  I think you’ll enjoy this article from New Jersey Monthly published last year, and the reminisence of Dr. Stanley Levy of his Princeton Passover with Einstein commemorating of freedom.
