Sad to see them go. They seemed so modern, comfortable, and permanent in 1966-67.

Lived there very happily with husband doing research, three boys, and working at the dean's office as a recorder from 1963 till 1968. Sad to see part of my history gone.

My husband was on sabbatical leave 1983-1984. Lived in Hibben apartments with my husband and three kids. Great memories.

My husband and I and our toddler lived in Hibben in 1984-85. We enjoyed the view of the lake, and loved having a balcony, two bedrooms in the apartment, and the community playroom for our son -- with its lending library of toys. But the cockroaches were legendary -- and everywhere!

I lived in Magie as a child in the late '70s while my father was on sabbatical in Princeton ... although the apartments looked a bit forboding, what an amazing setting in amongst the trees and overlooking the beautiful lake and island. This was the heart of the happiest and richest part of my childhood. So sad to see it torn down.
