BIRTHDAY TRIBUTE — Frank Sinatra
Happy 100th Birthday to the late, great Frank Sinatra! Born and bred in Hoboken, just across the Hudson River, Sinatra bonded with New York City early in his career. When he was 26, his concert at the Paramount Theatre (now Hard Rock Café in Times Square) sparked the famous “bobby sox riot” that signaled his arrival as a star. He went on to appear in such classic NYC movies as On the Town, Guys and Dolls, The Man With the Golden Arm, and many others. But surely his greatest connection to our city is his legendary recording of our unofficial anthem, New York, New York by Kander & Ebb. He made it here. He made it everywhere.
