It’s New to Us by Jean Stratton

SMILES AT NIKO NIKO: “Every day is different here. It’s never boring. There is a personal feeling in our shop. We know people’s names when they come in, and we like to interact with customers,” says Kelly Jung, owner of Niko Niko, one of the fifteen shops comprising Nassau Place. Shown is a montage of the shop’s intriguing display.

Niko Niko Translates to “Smile” in Japanese and Everyone Smiles When They See the Shop

Kelly Jung, proprietor of Niko Niko at 20 Nassau Street, is often asked whether her name is Niko.

“”No,” she replies with a smile. “Niko Niko means ‘smile’ in Japanese. We hope that our small shop with the same name will bring contagious smiles all over Princeton!”

BARBER SHOP TRIO: “We have a lot of customers, and they often know each other. It’s a real mix of people — Princeton University professors, people who work on Witherspoon Street, fathers and sons, and kids and friends. They all get together here.” Owner Irena Wolinski (right) is joined by the other barbers at Continental Barber Shop, Monica Wolinski and Aliya Verlasevic.

Continental Barber Shop on Witherspoon Street Has Been a Princeton Landmark for Over 50 Years

It was a hot July morning when Brian Garner stepped into the Continental Barber Shop at 38 Witherspoon Street. A student of molecular biology from Miami, he is an intern at Princeton University for the summer, and will return later for doctoral study.
