Francis Albert Sinatra was born in Hoboken, New Jersey.
He was baptized at St. Francis Church.
Pope Francis is right across the river.
If the Holy Father happens to be a Sinatra fan, perhaps a visit is in order…
At the very least, Pope Francis will reportedly be enjoying some cake from Carlo’s. Meanwhile, on our side of the Hudson, Leo’s Grandevous will feature an Argentinian-themed feast (empanada trio, skirt steak chimichurri with fries, dolce de leche gelato, Argentinian Malbec) in honor of His Holiness’ visit to the region.
I’m sure the folks at Leo’s could keep an extra seat open—maybe that one up above the bar?
Here’s Frank Sinatra singing “Pennies From Heaven,” live from Buenos Aires in 1981.
