Proclaiming the “best bakery in Hoboken” is about as contentious as proclaiming the “best religion in Jerusalem.” This is only out second issue—as a new magazine, the last thing we want to do it alienate any potential readers by saying something THAT stupid…
Rather than pick a favorite, in this issue we highlight the classics; and in the process we notice a common ingredient of hard-working individuals whose efforts help shape our community. Of course that’s been a prevalent theme for a long time in this city, illustrated not only by the exhibitions at the Hoboken Historical Museum but the existence of the museum itself. Overcoming adversity and getting things done is a true Hoboken characteristic, as resident and author Mary Carlomagno can attest. Through her own sense of “urban renewal,” Mary got herself organized and started to live life to its fullest – in the process developing a successful writing career.
There’s something about the New Year that makes us all consider the concepts of change or renewal. Maybe that change can come in your personal life – after all, Valentine’s Day is right around the corner. Here at hMAG, we’ve dropped our own subtle hints as to what we think might work for such a romantic occasion. Don’t have a Valentine? Well then, maybe you should sign up for your free profile on hmag.com and see who might be out there. You never know – we’ve been known to attract some talent… (special thanks to “America’s Next Top Model” Season Four winner Naima Mora and her Sister Nia for posing for our feature article!)
Enjoy our second issue and check us out online at hmag.com. Meanwhile, we extend our sincere gratitude to those who have helped us continue to grow. We thank you for reading, we look forward to hearing from you and we appreciate all you to do make Hoboken, well… Hoboken.
