A Recap of the EyeEm Hoboken Meetup
By Stephanie - 5 min read
On Saturday, March 23rd, our Hoboken ambassador Ketty lead the first EyeEm New Jersey Meet up. It was a gorgeous spring day with an exceptional blue sky…
Here’s a recap fromKetty:
I was so excited to meet the group at the historic Lackawanna Train Station in Hoboken, New Jersey. It is one of my favorite buildings because of its Beaux-Arts architectural style. We were 12 overall. Everyone introduced themselves, shared where they were from, and shared their favorite camera and editing tools. It was a fun and instructive way of getting to know one another. We also had a photo challenge with the theme of “Hoboken Perspectives”. It was a tough choice to pick a winner among such talented photographers. Nonetheless, the chosen winner at the end of the day was Andrea Bruzzese.
From the beginning, the group bonded and it set the tone for a harmonious photo walk. We walked by the Hoboken Waterfront with its unique view of the Manhattan skyline. Then, we walked over to Steven’s Institute of Technology. Stevens is a wonderful University founded in 1870. We then walked by the cobblestone streets and historic Brownstone buildings.
We completed our photo walk by having lunch at the famous Benny Tudino’s Pizzeria loved by locals. Overall, it was a fantastic day. I believe the pictures speak for themselves. So, make sure you check out our EyeEm Hoboken Meetup album and if you are in the area for the next meetup, please join us.
Thanks for joining in guys!
