Albert Einstein's house


One of the most common questions I get is: "Where is Einstein's house?" So here it is. (Not the best photo, but I felt sheepish jostling with a group out front - already taking photos.) Einstein lived here from 1936 until his death in 1955. It's still a private residence. I hear the current owner dresses as Einstein for Halloween. :)

Blush, I didn't know. It's a lovely house and now you know what your special assignment will be for Halloween! ;-)

Adele - thanks! I sort of feel for the owner, getting photographed all the time, but seems he has some fun with it at least once a year :)

cieldequimper - it's interestingly, a modest house for the area (I guess great thinkers don't need mansions :) - and lol, I *do* have my Halloween assignment cut out!

Well, how about that! I didn't know that Einstein lived in Princeton. Really funny about Halloween. PS. I like your picture better than the one in Wikipedia.

It must be a very interesting halloween party

LONDONLULU said...

LOLfromPasa - thanks so much, the Halloween thing will be fun to check out come October! (Many Einstein related bits scattered throughout town, hope to share more in future :)

Mo - haha, I shall try to get a better glimpse when the time comes :)

How interesting Lulu, such a great man it's fascinating to see where he lived..bit creepy the owner dressing as Einstein at Halloween haha!

Catherine Goron said...

Another interesting tidbit LuLu! Just wondering... are there always folks taking photos of the house?

I know very little about physics but you would have to have had your head in the sand not to know about Einstein. Its a nice looking house amongst beautiful mature trees.

LONDONLULU said...

Vallodolid - haha, that would be terrific!

PerthDailyPhoto - I have to admit, I really want to catch a glimpse of the guy dressed as Einstein, odd as it may seem (and it is admittedly, well, quirky at least :)!

Catherine - hope you had a nice break! I'm guessing the current residents do put up with a lot of people photographing the house - everytime I go by, someone is out there snapping away! :)

Paul - I love those towering old trees too. It is actually a modest house for the area - great minds do not need to be in mcmansions :)
