Hoboken is rife with homages and images of its native son Frank Sinatra, who grew up in the mile-square city after his birth in 1915. But there's never been a statue of the crooner there — until now. This Sunday, on what would have been the late singer's 106th birthday, Tina Sinatra, Joe Piscopo, and other dignitaries will be part of a celebration to unveil a bronze sculpture of the crooner at Sinatra Park in Hoboken.

The festivities will kick off in the park, located on the Hudson River, at 1 p.m. The celebration is open to the public, the mayor's office said. The park is a seven-block walk north of the Hoboken train terminal. The 6-foot bronze sculpture of Ol' Blue Eyes is the work of artist Carolyn Palmer, who has sculpted Pope Francis and Thomas Jefferson.
