No Place like The Rivington for the Holidays

by admin

December is a month full of magic and fun, but it can also be a time of stress. Between all the running around this month, remember to take some time and just enjoy yourself in your apartment! Here are some tips on how you can preserve your sanity during this hectic (and joyful) time.

 Indulge yourself! Spend as much time in bed as possible in the days leading up to the holiday. Eat what you want. Read what you want. Watch the TV you like. Be completely self-indulgent. Do what you need to get done, but also enjoy your time at home and don’t just leave it to wrapping gifts and endless cooking making. Your apartment is your sanctuary and it needs to always feel that way!

 Take a walk with your furry friend! A walk around the block with your dog can do wonders. Because we allow pets at The Rivington, for our residents with cats and dogs we encourage you to take refuge with your pet. Did you know that pets are natural stress relievers? Whether it’s just lounging with the cat or taking your pup to our local dog park, take a second out of your day to spend with your pet. It might be the most relaxing part of your day!

 Get in a workout! Between the warm NJ winter we’ve been having and our onsite fitness facility, there’s no reason not to get a workout in this December. While exercise is not something commonly associated with the holidays, you’d be surprised how relaxing a walk on the treadmill or elliptical can be after a busy shopping day.

 Rest, relax and reflect at The Rivington! The holidays are a time of joy – but only if you take the time to take care of yourself. Happy Holidays!

Holiday Shopping in Hoboken

by admin

If you’re still shopping for the holidays, you can find a gift for everyone on your list by taking a stroll down Washington Street. There’s everything you can think of from baked goods, to packaged fitness classes, to an assortment of gift items. Check out Carlo’s Bakery (95 Washington St.), home of the Cake Boss, and pick up some cannoli – it’s sure to be a hit at your office party! Or purchase a bag of delicious Haitian coffee beans at bwè kafe (1002 Washington St.) to please the coffee connoisseur on your list.

 You can try Fleet Feet (604 Washington St.) for your fitness happy friend. They offer an 11-week program that prepares runners for a spring challenge, in addition to their more general walking and athletic gear. And if that’s not quite what you’re looking for, perhaps a 10-pack of yoga classes at Surya Yoga studios (618 Washington St.) will do the trick. With 2 convenient locations in Hoboken, they also offer promotional packages to those who aren’t ready to commit to 10 classes.

 And to make your life easier this holiday season, free parking is being offered in city garages with a purchase of $25 or more, now through the end of the holiday season. Shoppers can park for free in municipal garages for up to four hours if they present receipts from local merchants for purchases totaling $25 or more to the parking attendant.

o out in Hoboken and get that Christmas list finished!
