Frank's stamp: Sinatra can still deliver
Ten years after his death, Hobokens very own Frank Sinatra is being commemorated with a new postage stamp. The 42-cent stamps release will be celebrated Tuesday in three places close to Sinatras heart.
One ceremony takes place at Gotham Hall in New York, New York, where Sinatras daughter Nancy and son Frank Jr. will be present at the 10 a.m. dedication.
The two others will be at the Bellagio Fountains in Las Vegas, the city where he famously ran with the Rat Pack, and another will happen across the river, in Sinatras hometown of Hoboken, at 3 p.m. at Pier A Park. Frank Jr. will be on hand again. If you go, check out these useful tips for a Sinatra tour of Hoboken.
Kazuhiko Sano designed the stamp, which features Ol Blue Eyes with a big smile and iconic fedora hat circa mid 1950s. Sinatras signature is scrolled across the bottom.
