See that bridge? The pale green iron span with the metal-grate surface? (Look straight down and you can see the Delaware flowing beneath your feet.) The one with the swallows' mud nests tucked underneath? The one leading out of the gridlocked streets of Bucks County's busiest little crafts-and- curios-and-cafes community? Take it. Walk or drive, but take it across the river into Lambertville, N.J., New Hope's neighbor to the east, a town of grand Victorian houses and modest Federal rowhouses, antiques stores and bookstores, galleries, bed-and- breakfasts, restaurants, handicraft shops, a giant weekend flea market, lacework and linens and children's clothing outlets and - yes, honest - fewer people.

As the search continued on Tuesday for a popular New Hope bartender who went missing early Saturday morning, many local residents were reminded of a strikingly similar incident that happened in this close-knit riverside community more than a decade ago. In 2000, local musician David Anderson went missing after spending a Friday night at John and Peter's, a New Hope bar. Anderson, according to an Inquirer article from the time, walked across the...

There are those in Lambertville who cast their eyes upon the slender bridge that links them to New Hope and think longingly in terms of dynamite. The old-fashioned steel span across the Delaware means that the things they fear most - crowds and kitsch - are just a stroll away. It's too easy for tourists (the word can evoke a delicate shudder) to leave their cars in Lambertville's parking spaces, drag their sticky-faced kids through Lambertville's fine antiques stores in a futile search for souvenir T-shirts, and create such a demand for trendy food that it's tough to get a regular old hoagie in Lambertville anymore.

The search for Sarah Majoras, the 39-year-old Lambertville, N.J., resident missing since early Saturday, appeared to come to an unfortunate end Wednesday, as Hunterdon County Prosecutor Anthony Kearns announced that authorities had recovered what they believed was her body in the Delaware and Raritan Canal. The body, recovered about 4:50 p.m., matched the description of Majoras, Kearns said. A positive identification was pending, he said. He added that Majoras' family had been notified.

Sarah Majoras, the New Hope bartender who was found dead in the Delaware and Raritan Canal in January, had a "high level" of alcohol in her blood when she accidentally fell into the waterway, according to the Hunterdon County (N.J.) Prosecutor's Office. "Based upon the totality of the circumstances, including her physical condition, the icy-cold weather conditions, and the lack of suspicious circumstances, Ms. Majoras' death is considered to have been a tragic accident," Prosecutor Anthony Kearns said in a statement released Monday.

An agreement of sale has been reached between the owners of the closed Ocean Spray cranberry plant in Bordentown City and a seasoned developer of industrial spaces, Mayor Joe Malone 3d said in an interview this week.

"We're very excited about the possibility of it being converted into a multiuse facility," he said.

It was cold on the Delaware River in northern Bucks County on Monday, breezy and nippy and raw. Below the bridge that reaches to Frenchtown, N.J., a 70-year-old fisherman sat in his open boat, warmed only by the hope of springtime. Hope seemed enough. On the river these days, it is an extraordinarily hopeful spring. "The shad are actually up this year 10 days to two weeks early," said Edward M. Marks, a video screen showing fish moving under his boat, there in the river at Frenchtown.

Tony La Salle and Robert Maggio have discovered that an old house can be modernized and still retain its Victorian charm. Inspiring this epiphany was the dilapidated farmhouse the couple bought in Lambertville that, along with its 131-year-old pedigree, had the distinction of being among the few freestanding houses in town. Also noteworthy, their new neighbors told them, was that its former owners, who had lived there for 50 years, had rarely opened the curtains, and the house always appeared dark and uninviting.

Labor Day weekend marks the last of our Friday night summer suppers for friends and family at Canal House, our cookbook publishing studio along the Delaware and Raritan Canal in Lambertville, N.J. These suppers have become a tradition, thanks in part to Fireworks Friday, the spectacle launched from a barge anchored in the Delaware River south of the green iron New Hope-Lambertville bridge. The display is equal to any you'll see on a Fourth of July. We're already licking our chops for this year's finale.

Police and dozens of volunteers continued searching sections of Lambertville, N.J., on Monday for Sarah Majoras, a New Hope bartender last seen early Saturday. Majoras, 39, a bartender at John & Peter's, was apparently walking home after spending Friday night with friends watching a band at the bar, according to Michael Gardner, a fellow bartender reached by telephone Monday. She was not working Friday, he said. After the bar closed, Majoras set off by herself to walk back to Lambertville, where she lives with her boyfriend, Gardner said.

The news, more than a year ago, that the 56-year-old musician Danny DeGennaro was murdered in his mother's home in Levittown caused little stir beyond the Bucks County area. Various websites and blogs noted that he had been a member of the Grateful Dead-inspired band Kingfish, and that he had played with the also recently deceased Clarence Clemons. But that was it. There was so much more to it. To him. I heard Danny for the first time nearly 20 years ago, in the spring of 1993.
