Frank Sinatra might have been born in Hoboken, but as soon as he was old enough to know better, he moved to Jersey City!

Among the highlights of Sinatra's life in Jersey City are:
The singer and Nancy Barbato of Jersey City were married here in Our Lady of Sorrows Church.

The newlyweds resided in an apartment at 137 Bergen Avenue.

HERE THEY ARE ON NEWARK AVE.

Their first two children – Nancy and Frank Jr. – were born at Margaret Hague Hospital in Jersey City.

Sinatra's first stint as a radio singer was on the local station (WAAT) in Late 1936, a 15-minute show for which he earned 75 cents.

Sinatra reportedly decided on a career as a singer after seeing Bing Crosby in a movie at the Loew's Theater here. Not long after that he won a singing contest at the recently-demolished State Theater. It was from Jersey City that Sinatra commuted to the Rustic Cabin in Englewood. The rest is history.

For those of you who know Frank Sinatra Drive as the long and winding road on Hoboken’s waterfront, well, kids, its time you knew some Hoboken history. Let’s just say Ol’ Blue Eyes grew up in Hoboken back when almost every corner had a gin joint and if you could carry a tune, some music-lover on a barstool bought you a drink.
