HOBOKEN – The Hoboken Historical Museum will host numerous events in June, and plans to extend the “Frank Sinatra: The Man, the Voice and the Fans” exhibit – initially planned to close on July 3 – through the end of the year. The decision was done “due to unprecedented public interest” in the exhibition, a museum spokesperson said. On June 4, the museum will have the opening reception for the upper gallery art exhibit, “The Real Poop on Pigeons: Paintings by Kevin McCloskey” from 2 to 4 p.m. His work will remain on display through July 3 and the exhibit is free to the public. The Sinatra Singer Series will continue, featuring Jack McDade on June 4 at 4 p.m. Admission is a suggested entrance fee of $5. The 19th Annual Secret Garden Tour will be held on Sunday, June 5 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. The rain date is June 12. “Tucked away behind Hoboken’s row homes and converted factory buildings is a world of lush gardens and cleverly designed courtyard spaces, as diverse as the city’s residents. Gardeners and non-gardeners alike are invited to indulge their curiosity and pick up urban gardening ideas [at the tour],” the museum said in a statement.

I have seen your repeatedly make charges of corruption and you never provide any facts to back up your outrageous allegations. Got facts ? How many unsubstantiated allegations will Hoboken tolerate from you before they write you off as a crackpot ? The City Council voted unanimously on this appointment. Including Councilmen Ramos and Romano.

HOBOKEN – Sometimes New Jersey’s nickname, “The Garden State” can be a tough sell when you’re wandering through the concrete jungle of Hudson County. But the Hoboken Uptown Farmers’ Market, in conjunction with The Quality of Life Coalition, will be arriving soon, with proof in the form of strawberries, sweet corn, and those famous Jersey tomatoes that the state of New Jersey’s gardens, farms and fields is healthy and delicious. For the eighth year, beginning June 2 and running through October, the market will be open Thursdays from 2 to 7 p.m. The convenient location at the corner of 13th & Hudson streets ensures that residents of uptown Hoboken and beyond will have an opportunity to load up on some freshly-picked salad greens for Thursday night’s dinner or a scrumptious peach pie for the weekend barbecue. This year, the market will welcome occasional guest vendors. Jersey City Fish Stand will set up at the market the first Thursday of each month, with a local and sustainable selection of seafood. Roaming Acres Farm will be at the market every week with an exceptional variety of free-range and antibiotics-free meats, from kosher chicken, to ostrich, bison, and emu, and even exotic pet treats. Returning vendors for the eighth season include Stony Hill Farms, Gina’s Bakery, Hoboken Farms, and customer favorite Doc Pickle, who will happily give you a sample of any of his briny offerings. Organic produce and other non-GMO products are available from Poplar Wood Farm. As the only certified ‘Jersey Fresh’ market and member of the New Jersey Council of Farmers & Communities (NJCFC) in uptown Hoboken, all patrons can be assured that market produce is grown right here in New Jersey. As in years past, the market is committed to helping its neighbors in Hoboken who have limited access to fresh fruits and vegetables. At the end of each day, vendors are encouraged to donate leftover produce to the Hoboken Shelter. Additionally, eligible customers are welcome to use WIC (Women, Infants & Children Program) coupons with participating merchants. Look for the Hoboken Uptown Farmers’ Market on Facebook, where they’ll keep you updated on the deal of the day and what’s in season.

Other sections of Sinatra drive are vulnerable to collapsing?! Are you freaking kidding me? My family walks and drives on that road? Mr. Romano why isn't this area closed to pedestrian and car traffic? And why haven't you been pushing this to get done Quicker? You have known about it since 2010 and repairs won't start until 2018? This is the craziest and most reckless most irresponsible thing I have ever heard about? DO SOMETHING MR. ROMANO! NOW!
