New Jersey natives Bruce Springsteen and Frank Sinatra, along with 13 others, were inducted into the state’s new Hall of Fame May 4th at the New Jersey Performing Arts Center in Newark.
"Rise up, my fellow New Jerseyans. We are all members of a confused but noble race," Springsteen said. "Even with this wonderful Hall of Fame, we know there’s another bad Jersey joke just around the corner."
Harriet Tubman, Yogi Berra and Thomas Edison were among the New Jerseyans honored, chosen through an online vote after 25 finalists were announced in 2006.
Officials are raising money to build a permanent museum, as the Hall of Fame is currently only a virtual entity.
