Under Construction

Yes, it seems that Princeton is always under construction. As soon as they finished Whitman it was time for Butler to come down. It seems like every day new things pop up--like that new path from Whitman to the Dinky. Now I won't have to get my shoes muddy when I go to the Wa on a rainy night. (Except of course that the Wa will be moved, but that will be after my time...)
The assortment of orange barriers around Nassau Hall makes it difficult to know what the shortest route from Rocky to McCosh might be. It's not fun to discover that your shortcut is blocked by construction when you're late to class. And of course, the University has just released its new plans for the further development of campus...

All of this makes it very hard for Google Maps to keep track of it all.

Zoom in a bit, and you'll see that Bloomberg is nowhere to be found, Whitman is a bunch of athletic courts, and Butler is still standing strong. Curiously, if you turn on the Map function, the map will tell you about the rise of Bloomberg and Whitman, but not about Butler's demise.

And then of course, there's the fact that the University's website has just been redone.
