Selfie Station Brings Smiles to Downtown Trenton

August 23, 2021

If you haven’t stopped by the colorful new mural on South Warren Street in downtown Trenton, known simply as “the selfie station," you’re missing out on some fun – and a chance to win $100.

Every month, TDA will be awarding one lucky selfie taker with a $100 Love Local gift card, just for snapping a photo at the selfie station, posting it on Instagram and adding the hashtags #trentonselfie and #LoveLocalTrenton.

The mural, created by Leon Rainbow with the help of artist R Fab, and with the support of the City of Trenton and Roland Pott, says “Welcome to Trenton” as a message to all.

“It’s an upbeat way to bring attention to downtown Trenton as a place to eat, shop, and enjoy the arts,” says Patricia Hall, interim Executive Director of TDA. “We want to encourage people to come back and support local businesses, and we couldn’t think of a better way to do that than by giving away Love Local gift cards, which can be used at any participating business, from 1911 Smokehouse BBQ and Royal Cake Creations to BeSuited men’s clothing store and Classics Used Book Store, among others.”

The selfie station is located in the heart of downtown Trenton, an area that now has three new parklets, funded by Isles, Inc., and supported by the City of Trenton and TDA. The parklets are designed to reclaim public space and provide a comfortable place to enjoy fresh air and outdoor dining.
