Saturday in the Burg

TRENTON -- I wonder if Stephanie Plum would recognize the 2012 version of the Burg. The demographics are changing by the minute, and by 2020 Latinos will be the majority population of residents and business owners in the swath of land from Hamilton to Liberty between South Clinton and Chambers. Times and Trenton ethnic immigration change, from the Hungarians to the Italians to the Latinos. If Latinos dominate the Burg by 2020, it will be interesting to see what group dominates the Burg in 2050. Anyway, here are photos (click to enlarge) from today in a piece of the Burg -- both sides of South Clinton from Hamilton to the Roebling Market with a little bit of action on Hudson. The newest Plum adventure in bounty huntering ought to be updated to represent these days in the Burg.
