Planet Princeton
365 Night Sleep Trial

About

Planet Princeton was created by veteran journalist Krystal Knapp as an online forum for all things Princeton. Krystal moved to Princeton to attend graduate school, and she loved Princeton so much that she never left. She has been featured in various local, regional, and national publications for comment about Princeton issues, and has been a guest on NPR.

Planet Princeton was created out of an awareness that the Princeton community needs a central place on the web where we can share news, events and community concerns. The biggest contributors to the success of Planet Princeton are our readers. Your participation makes this site a true online community and destination for breaking news, features, and local event information.

At Planet Princeton we promise to never mask paid advertising as news like some other local sites do. We won’t mention any names, but there are local sites out there that try to pass off paid ads and press releases as news. At Planet Princeton we do not receive cash or in-kind compensation from any company we write about. This means we pay for our own meals when we review a restaurant and buy our own ingredients when we cook.
