Hoboken businesswoman Karen Nason is passionate about a lot of things—particularly the arts.
The owner of Hoboken Hothouse (200 Monroe Street), Nason’s own résumé also includes art and performing arts. With that in mind, she opened Hoboken Hothouse with the idea of further cultivating the cultural scene here in Hoboken.
Now she is reaching beyond her own business and hoping to make an impact where it’s needed most.
“My friend Loren Korevec tunes the piano at Hoboken High School,” says Nason. “Lauren and I have always talked about music.”
So Nason, with the help of General Lumber (200 Clinton Street), had her piano delivered to the school as a donation.
Nason has also declared her candidacy in the upcoming 2017 Hoboken Mayoral Election.
“We need to increase the dimension of what makes Hoboken special,” she says, via her website NasonForMayor.com. “Arts and culture needs to be supported and we must develop partnerships with business and sponsors that can help bring in world class performances. The nucleus of a new Hoboken Arts Community will contribute to a quality of life that we will be proud of and it will also bring in significant tax revenue for our citizens.”
