Tell us a little about yourself!
My name is Amber and I’ve been living in Hoboken for 7 years. I’m originally from Hamilton, NJ and always knew that I wanted to stay a Jersey Girl but wanted the option of a city and being near NYC. I instantly fell in love with Hoboken the first time I ever visited. I’m an Art Director, Graphic Designer, Social Media Guru, and Photographer. I am married and had a baby boy in the height of the pandemic. I’m an Art Director at Broadway Dance Center in NYC and I run a bunch of social accounts in and around Hoboken on the side.
Tell us about your business! How did it start? Biggest challenge? Favorite part? Where do you see it going?
I started my page @hoboken_love as a fun way to show my photography, our amazing city and to not bother all of my friends and family with all Hoboken content. It’s evolved to a place where people come for recommendations, a way to help support local businesses, and a little more about me.
My favorite part is obviously all the delicious food I get to eat and the VIEWS. I love walking out of the door and having such beautiful streets, homes, and of course the NYC views.
What is your biggest source of inspiration?
My biggest source of inspiration is really the local businesses and the community we have here in Hoboken.
What do you like to do for fun?
I love hanging out with my friends and family, the beach (especially The Beachcomber in Wellfleet, MA), and concerts.
