  • About

    Welcome to HobokenGirl.com. We live, breathe, eat, and sleep Hoboken and Jersey City lifestyle topics, and know that Hudson County is a unique place filled with entrepreneurs, young professionals, and families {some who have been here for only a few years to others that have been here for four generations} — all which create and add vibrancy to our exciting and diverse Gold Coast.

    I’m Jen. I’m just another sarcastic brunette from New Jersey with leather boots and a Louis Vuitton {there’s a lot of us}. But, I happen to adore blogging…and all things Hoboken and Jersey City. I started HobokenGirl.com in 2012 when my love for our mile square turned into a low key obsession combined with my desire to write and share my experiences. On New Year’s Even 2012, I bought the domain name HobokenGirl.com, and since that moment I decided to devote my extracurricular time to chronicling all adventures that Hoboken and its surrounding areas have to offer — from a female perspective.

    In 2012, I was working as a school counselor in a public school in New Jersey, but several years later, I took it full time in January 2017. The site has grown into a lifestyle website about Hoboken and Jersey City with over 20 contributors and six team members {who do it all as a side hustle and live locally}. It was a big risk and total labor of love-turned-job — and truth be told, I couldn’t have imagined to have it turn into what it is today, let alone do it without my kicka$$ team.

    • Hi there,

      Big fan. Really enjoy your tips and reviews of local places, this has become my new blog. Just have 2 questions:

      1. Do you have any suggestions for a salon that does threading?
      2. Do you have a team of people, or is it just you running this show?

      Thank you! Keep up the fantastic blog!
      Alie
