Meet Our Resident Blogger Kelly O

You've probably seen Kelly's friendly face on the reg at Prime, but did you know she is also our resident blogger?!? Living and working in Hoboken for almost 6 years has her fingers on the pulse of all things relative in Hoboken! This week, the managers have hacked the blog and turned the spotlight on her!

Check out what makes Kelly LOVE Hoboken and embrace the small town culture.

Why do you like living/working in Hoboken??
How many years have you lived here?I Love how easy it is to get everywhere! Since it is only a mile square, traveling by foot isn't the end of the world. This month marks SIX years that I've lived here in this fabulous town. I still love that my old landlord & mail man from my first year living here still goes out of their way to say hello to me & always asks how Bailey {her dog} is doing. I love the small town hoboken feel!

What are your fave spots for food/hair/shopping?

-I'm a huge fan of Mikie Squared on 6th on Washington {It has been my friends and I's go to spot since day one...sangria Sunday!}I also love the make your own salad selection at Stewed Cow on 4th & Adams.
-My best friend Nicole has been my hairdresser since 2009. We worked at the same salon here in Hoboken for about a year & I've been going to her at The Beauty Parlor on 4th &washington since 2011. Check Nicole out! She does amazing work!
-Dear Hannah is one of my favorite places to shop! She has the best accessories that go along perfectly with all of her clothing & she always has the latest trends from pinapple gold phone cases to blanket scarves & shes a friend of mine

I know you have 2 dogs. Where are your favorite dog friendly spots in Hoboken?
Yes! Bailey & Diesel LOVE walking around town. Bailey is a Black Lab & Diesel is a Boston Terrier. The dog park under the viaduct is one of their favorites because it has a plastic kiddie pool & a tunnel for them to run through. They also enjoy roaming around Stevens Campus & play ball near the tennis courts. Of course they love to stop by Prime Cycle to say hello to the staff.

Bike Share came to Hoboken within the past year. How helpful is the bike option to get to and from Prime?
I love the Hoboken Bike Share!! It has been one of the best things that has come to town. I'm huge about protecting our environment so I'm very pleased our town jumped on the band wagon. I use it everyday to ride to Prime Cycle. It comes in handy when I have to be there at 5:15am... it's only a 6 min bike ride from my apartment on Jefferson!

How has working at Prime Cycle for almost two years influenced your feeling of community in the Mile Square?
Well I've actually been working in Hoboken since 2009 as a hairdresser, as well as, a couple other businesses in town. However, working in uptown Hoboken has been my favorite; you can't beat the view from the Prime Cycle waterfront! I enjoy coming into work & watching the sun rise as I check in clients. I also love the relationships I have developed with families & clients. Bonus...I can walk or use the bike share to get myself to & from work...you cant beat that! 

Name three adjective that describe Hoboken to you!
