If you find yourself in Flemington on a weekend, it could take you 20 minutes to get from one end of town to the other; never mind the drive from North Brunswick. I lived there and graduated from the local high school in the 1960’s and the traffic could be bad even back then. There are a number of outlet stores, Flemington Furs, Turntable Juction (a bunch of cutesy shops right off Main St.), and more that attract a whole bunch of shoppers, especially from now til Christmas. Throw the current highway construction problems into the mix and it can be a real p.i.t.a..
It is a really nice town though and, if you can afford it, a great place to live. Flemington is probably best known as the site of the Bruno Hauptmann (Lindbergh baby kidnapper) trial back in 1936. The courthouse still stands as does the Union Hotel (good food) right across the street where the droves of reporters stayed during the trial.
I noticed "Frankly My Dear" when I was there in July, but didn’t go in. I was told they were doing good business. They must be doing something right if they’re still going. The competition for the food dollar is pretty fierce in town and the overhead must be high. pb
