            Our NJ and Hoboken FRANK SINATRA Music Tour

BEFORE YOU ARRIVE  PREPARE YOURSELF  -     In order to get some insight into our City of Hoboken - A great primer before the Sinatra tour might be to watch the academy award winning Best Film of the Year, ON THE WATERFRONT.  Starring Marlon Brando.  Interestingly Mr. Frank Sinatra was repeatedly promised the Brando role, which many International film critics claim was the movie role that Frank Sinatra was born to play.

On The Waterfront 1954 -  Best Picture - 8 Oscar's Academy Award Winner -   Rent and See the Movie - This movie shot on location in Hoboken NJ -  Based on 1940's Pulitzer prize winning series of 24 historical newspaper articles, about operations of the Hoboken Waterfront.   The movie  "On the Waterfront"  Is a story about life struggles in Hoboken, a kid from Hoboken and the movie was shot in Hoboken. Many believe Sinatra should have been cast as the lead in this movie, especially After Frank Sinatra won his second Oscar 1953 Best Supporting Actor award for "From Here to Eternity", which also won the Oscar from Best Picture 1953.  

The Magic of the Hoboken Frank Sinatra Tour is NOT ONLY in just seeing a spot where this great man stood, ate or lived, but in trying see the OLD Hoboken inspired and drove this family to endure, persevere against the odds and not only to move upward to a better life for their children, but to succeeded.

Hoboken was a tough industrial factory town.  Gone are the many many active 24/7, 3 shifts a day - factories, foundries, shipping docks, ships,  coal smoke stacks and industrial plants, but shadows of the old architecture is still here.    No Doubt, Hoboken was a very tough industrial town with many hard working families, who were very committed to the families they raised. 

Many people on a walking tour are so busy walking from point to point past new buildings that they miss a lot core elements that drove Mr. Sinatra to success in the very tough music business.

The Fact Is  - It takes a very tough individual to make such beautiful tender music.  Our tour is Full of Life Great lessons that are timeless. Music is Magic.

 

 
    
           

FRANK SINATRA WALKING TOUR MAP - See Google Maps

A Map will Never Captures any Heartfelt Music Frank Sinatra Legendary Perspective  -

The  SINATRA,  name is found all over the city, at the parks and roads named for him, and indoors in the artwork and memorabilia put together by fans.

For anyone interested in finding out more about the man who became known as "The Voice," there's no better place to start than his former hometown.

Born in a cold-water flat on Dec. 12, 1915 to Italian immigrant parents, Sinatra grew up in a Hoboken very different from what it is today.

In the 1910S, 20's and 30s, the city's residents went to work in factories or dockside on the Hudson River.
By night, they frequented smoky nightspots, social clubs, pool halls and bars.

Though the city still maintains an active nightlife, years of improvements have left it far cleaner and safer than it was when Sinatra won over local crowds during his rise to fame.

Sinatra's first taste of fame came in 1935  when he and three other Hobokenites, together called the Hoboken Four, performed on the nationally syndicated radio show
Major Bowes and His Original Amateur Hour  1935 .

The Hoboken Four opened the door for Sinatra to go solo. He later earned gigs vocalizing with bandleader Harry James and then fronting Tommy Dorsey's band, each furthering his career.

Sinatra's 60-year career would influence generations of American popular music, and he is named by many as the greatest vocalist of all time.

Included on this self-guided walking tour are 16 of the most notable sites chronicling Frank Sinatra's Hoboken, including his birthplace, some old hangouts, memorials to the singer, and collections of historical records and memorabilia.

You'll be able to soak in the city's charm and history, grab some great food, and meet some native Hobokenites who idolize the great crooner.

For a map outlining the route, pick up a copy of the Gateway Guide. To walk the path as outlined, allow about 90 minutes plus time to visit each stop. Some locations may not be open at all times.

 

 

 

 

           

Some of the FRANK SINATRA Music Tour Locations and Stops

Hoboken is a City to be seen. It so close to the majestic Manhattan NYC New York City skyline that you'll feel you can reach out across the Hudson River and touch it.  Just a ferry ride to Manhattan, yet worlds away.  The Hoboken of the 1920's and 1930's when Frank grew up here is incredibly different from what you will see on your tour.   The gone are vast factories and industry are gone in this small Mile Square City of Hoboken.  You can certainly see glimpses of  the Sinatra family Hoboken's historical past.  Many of the buildings at these addresses below have been demolished or redeveloped.  Start your tour and visit at any location.  It is all very walkable.

HOBOKEN LACKAWANNA TRAIN STATION AND FERRY PORT  - ON THE WATERFRONT
To get into New York City Manhattan, Frank Sinatra took the Hoboken Ferry from here to cross the Hudson River.   In the SouthEastern most corner of  Hoboken, this terminal has always been the State of NJ's largest mass transit hub 
 

 Birthplace of Frank Sinatra - 415 Monroe St.    - Building No Longer Standing
     Sinatra Family First Hoboken Home  It is amazingly small.  The four-story, eight-family apartment building where Francis Albert Sinatra was born here in 1915 -  Cold water flats.  Each floor had a community bathroom to share.  No single apartment had it's own bathroom. The build had small railroad style apartments of just very small three rooms for each apartment with each  Each apartment had a Window in the front room and the back room usually the kitchen facing the backyard - Most probably a "Laundry line" hanging out the back window for dry clothes off after being washed in the kitchen sink.  The building suffered a major fire in 1967 and was razed the following year. The entire property being sold off in a tax sale around 1970+.  
 

 FROM HERE TO ETERNITY MUSEUM  -  417 Monroe St.
 Next to the Sinatra Family First Hoboken Home.  Many local neighbors wanted to honor our local legend.  This A modest very small one story building was the short lived home (Just Months in the Mid 1990's)  of  local neighbors collections to hold Frank Sinatra Memorabilia for all visitors to see.  The address is now the site of a Hollywood Boulevard-style bronze star placed by local fans Private donors - Shirak and Lepore Family with the assistance of the Hoboken Historical Museum in 1996 to  commemorate Frank Sinatra our local hero musical legend.  We have had many Local attempts to find funding and support to host a permanent historical archive collection or Sinatra museum collection to honor our entertainment music hero.

HOBOKEN CITY HALL  - 94 Washington St.
Sinatra was awarded the key to the city of Hoboken by the Hoboken Mayor and Council 
on Oct. 30, 1947,  which was declared
 "Frank Sinatra Day."    Approximately 20,000 fans reportedly crowded Washington Street to catch a glimpse of their hometown hero as he rode in a fire truck driven by his father, Marty.  It was Frank Sinatra's last large open to the public appearance in Hoboken for almost 40 years. 

Hoboken Public Library - 500 Park Ave.   - 
Shocking - There is NOT much on public display, even the book cases are locked.     The library's second floor reference Sinatra Room area -  Holds a collection of Sinatra books and memorabilia that was established in honor of Frank's mother, Dolly, after she died in a plane crash in 1977.  Sadly the Collection is "Archived" or Stored from public view and listed as only Reference material..  It is Minimal at this location  - It's as reference material and not fully displayed open the public. Visitors can view original paintings of Sinatra, but many books are locked away, even many Sinatra Biographies and other listing.  Better Pictures may be seen openly at  Piccolo's or Leo's Grandevous  or  even at the City Hall Clerks office.DVD's and CD's can be loaned out with Discographies of his Music Recordings.   The  Hoboken Library's does have a Frank Sinatra CD collection is in the First floor media room.   The Biggest Archive Library  is said to be in CA 

JEFFERSON HALL  AND WEIGHT LIFTING CLUB       530  Jefferson Street
The local neighborhood Health club of it's day - During the Great Depression Frank Joined at dues of just $1 per month

MARTY O'BRIEN SINATRA - HFD  FIREHOUSE Engine No 5  -   412 Grand Street 
After the family Bar closed - Frank's father, Marty, got a job in the HFD Hoboken Fire Department - Marty retired as a Captain.  He was assigned to HFD - Engine Co No 5  -  at this address.  It is now a private home.

He told the audience, "I hope you all live to be 400 years old and the last voice you hear is mine."

THE  UNION CLUB  - 600 Hudson St.   Job as a Singer   A Club, Banquet Hall  and Catering Facility - Originally had a Beautiful Dance Floor  - Now an Apartment House
   Duality of Music Spirit in Hoboken   -  Location of  Sinatra's Early Music Career Successes and later Sinatra Fan and family disappointments

Union Club  -  Success
After Winning Major Bowes Radio Amateur Hour Contest with the Hoboken Four 
-1935  Frank Sinatra performed at the Union Club,   a popular locale for dances and political events, for $40 a week in 1935 (Frank at Age 20).
Originally called the Deutscher Club, it changed its name during the first World War.     
In the 1980s, the building was converted into condominiums.  

Union Club  -  Disappointments    -  FRANK'S last big Hoboken public appearence for 30+ Years.    
       for Many Hoboken Sinatra Fans  - Entertainers Hometown Syndrome
 
  SONG That's L:ife Quote - Funny as it may seem, Some People get their Kicks Stomping on a Dream 
In 1947  Five Years earlier - Frank was given a Parade with Key to the City of Hoboken by the Mayor surrounded by 20,00 fans despite heavy rain falls.

1951 to 1952 - date approximated   Marty O'Brien Sinatra, Frank's Father and  City of Hoboken Fire Department Captain, . asked his son
to donate his time for music performance at the  Hoboken Fire Department Benevolent Association Charity Fund Raiser.  Hoboken had many very dedicated Frank Sinatra music fans. 

Historical Background  and Trends
Hometown Syndrome - Public Figures and Entertainers are consistently affected by this  - where some locals are never satisfied with the accomplishments of any hometown entertainers.   Music Genre History  -Around the 1950, 51, 52 post war teens did start to embrace Danceable Rock and Roll and  the Radio Alan Freed's - Moondog Rock and Roll Party. 
 

Frank Sinatra has been estimated to have helped raise over 1 Billion Dollars for charitable causes at fund raisers
Here in Hoboken, Frank's and his parent were well known around Hoboken for their great generosity in
donating their time and making contributions  for local churches,  the needy and charitable causes. 
So Frank, as musician donates his time to make an appearance,  for a Hoboken Fire Department worthy Charitable Fund raising causes.  
Believe it or not  Some highly selfish audience members were very disrespectful at the Union Club Fire Dept charity fund raiser. 
Audience members were Not Receptive, respectful, and disrupted, Frank Sinatra's sing during his very first song and would not stop.  
Further, Sinatra music and family supporters would not or could not stop the disruption. 

Why should any musician who donates their time to charity as a volunteer have to put up with disruptive audience behavior. 
The selfish few audience members ruined it for so many Sinatra fans not only in Hoboken, but all around the county of Hudson New Jersey.
Why wouldn't a local event provide any type of security or protection for the band and performers for the venue or the event?
Simply  that  was  very disappointing to Frank - Why would it not be.  Frank had nothing to prove to anyone back home.

It is easy to understand, why Frank Sinatra left the Union Club stage,  said Good Night to the audience and was so
disappointed he never make public appearances in Hoboken until 1984 with President Ronald Regan at the St Anns church Festa Italiana..
Sinatra's Music was good enough to sing on great International stages to sold out crowds all around the world, but a
few selfish individuals in Hoboken with self motivated agendas ruined it for our City's dedicated, Frank Sinatra music fans.

Hometown local neighbors many never be Satisfied and Sadly - Yes Adversaries do try, to try to Stomp on Dreams,
 but  Frank Sinatra's tenacity helped him - endure and persevere.- succeeding in the Entertainment industries Worldwide

 

 

 

 

           

SINATRA FAMILY  -  HOBOKEN NJ  HOMES -

703 Park Ave.   -  Sinatra Family's Second Family Home    - just months or  Less than a year
The Sinatra's family move out of  Hoboken's  Little Italy Piccolo Italia neighborhood.  In 1927, the Sinatra family moved to this address, located in a more prestigious part of town. Frank Sinatra was 12 years old at the time of the move.

841 Garden St.  and  837 Garden St. - Sinatra Family's Third Neighborhood in two  Hoboken Homes   
Just Doors apart in approximately 1930 Years & Dates of these two Garden St address Sinatra homes are debated and records are not clear.  Home of Frank Sinatra and his family from the time he was 15 until he was 20+,   Young Frank is said to have his own bedroom, which was a big thing at that time.  In his early 20's frank seems to move in or out or be there part time.  He married his long time Jersey City girlfriend Nancy Barbato in 1939, then settled in Jersey City where Frank first two children were born.   These Garden Street home of the  Sinatra family were Next Door to the family friends the Liguori Family and Dolly's godson, Jerome Liguori .  Franks Mom, Dolly,  ran the Frank Sinatra Fan Club Hoboken operations in the early days of Frank career.  Dolly continued to answer Frank fan mail and autograph requests that was sent to her Hoboken home for many years.  Dolly's Godson Jerome was a great helper his godmother, for fan mail. and autograph pictures.

909 Hudson St.   -    Sinatra Family's LAST Family Home in Hoboken  - Marty O'Brien and Dolly's last Hoboken house.
Once Sinatra hit the big time, he bought this property on one of the city's nicest blocks for his parents.   The building has beautiful architecture.  After this house  Dolly and Marty wanted to stay close to Hoboken area friends and family, but, moved just a mile North  to the Weehawken area.  Many see this building as a symbol of Sinatra's success. "When Frank made it big, this was his present to his mom and dad,"  says Robert Foster, director of the Hoboken Historical Museum.   "People on the block talk about seeing Frank's limo being double-parked, [when he visited for dinner] on Sunday nights."
Bands and  Nightclubs who Frank worked with loved Frank's mom Dolly, for many reason's, but she was said to be a amazing cook back in Hoboken and brought the food to Manhattan. 
Musicians did seem to love trays of Sausage and Peppers, she brought to the recording studios and concerts venues for the bands. 
Once again wonderful Italian food making friends where ever it goes.

FRANK SINATRA  -  Must Visit Memorabilia Stops  on 

Piccolo's - 92 Clinton St.    201-653-0564     * Recommendation - Bring Your Camera and Appetite - Breakfast and Lunch
  They are Best known for their Cheese Steaks, but have full menu for both Breakfast and Lunch 
Frank Sinatra music is played from opening until closing each day in this informal Italian eatery, a fixture in Hoboken for more than 50 years. 
Piccolo's Famous Back Room  - The back room, which is lined with hundreds of Sinatra photographs, is known far and wide.
"I've had Thousands of people from Sweden, Argentina, Japan - all over the world - stop by just to see this room,"
says owner Joseph "Sparky" Spaccavento, a lifelong Hoboken resident and, of course, Sinatra fan.   
 

Leo's Grandevous - 200 Grand St.  Corner of 2nd Street     201-659-5905   
Great Location for Beautiful Sinatra Pictures and Memorbilla
Mon-Fri  Lunch 11:30 to 2pm and Dinner after 4:30pm   WEEKENDS - Sat and Sunday Dinner Only after 4pm    
The original owners of this popular Italian restaurant and tavern, Leo and Tessie DiTerlizzi, were ardent Sinatra fans. Aside from the dozens of large Sinatra photographs and posters adorning the walls, Leo's features a jukebox with plenty of Sinatra songs that was once dubbed "The World's Greatest Frank Sinatra Jukebox." The bar was named by one magazine as one of the best in America in 2002.
 

Dom's Bakery Grand - 506 Grand St.     201-653-1948    -   Handmade Bread Bakery - Closed on Sundays -
Though Sinatra moved away from his hometown once he found fame, he never left behind this small Hoboken bakery.
Sinatra is said to have received deliveries of Dom's bread for many years.   Be Sure to Stop By and try the Bread, Nice. 
Mr. Sinatra was Right, It is the Best Bread Bakery in the City of Hoboken.   You are going to want to take alot of bread home with you.  It is fantastic.  The Focaccia is Incredible, Wow- 7 to 8 AM is the best time to stop by for Hot Bread. 
If you really want to try some - Recommendation - Since they always Sell Out  Call Ahead - Place your orders via Credit Card 
The morning hot Focaccia  slices are a great breakfast. The Focaccia  Tomato sauce gravy is gourmet by any measure and slightly addictive.

FRANK SINATRA TWO NEW YORK CITY - FAVORITE VENUES TO VISIT 

PATSY'S  ITALIAN RESTAURANT   http://PATSYS.COM    
 915  Third Avenues New York, NY  between 55th and 56th Streets    -
The Original Venue and Only One Location in NYC  
How can anyone truly describe  PATSY's ?   
It is beyond -   Magical,  Marvelous  and Amazing.  A sacred venue to many.
The greatest Food, Drink, History and tradition in one location.
It is a must visit venue for any Big Sinatra Rat Pack Fan

If you are in Manhattan for a couple of Days - You may want to eat there a few times.  It is always fun and it's easy to understand why Frank and the entire Sinatra Family, entourage and friends - Loved this restaurant.

Do yourself and your family the biggest Favor - Buy their Cookbook  - Even Online. We would recommend reading it before your first visit. It is a Must Read from an incredibly dedicated to quality family, whose work ethic is extraordinary.  Family members onsite will be glad to autograph it for you. 

At a Manhattan time where record CD and DVD movie stores are closing every day and moving online - Purely as a courtesy convenience to their customers - Patsy's does offer a few of the very best Frank Sinatra recordings.  Like the Live concert Sinatra DVD collection.  It is just so you do not have to leave empty handed.
