Some New Jersey Street Names That Are Part Of Music History
Just when you think you know every bit of Garden State trivia there is to know, the Garden State throws you a trivia curveball.
We all know every famous Bon Jovi, Bruce Springsteen and even Sinatra song lyric there is to know. We can name every movie, TV show and arena they have performed at, appeared in or had a song on a soundtrack of.
We proudly recite the Garden State town they grew up in, lived or ever drove through. We can name all their album titles in order of release dates, but can you name the names of the New Jersey streets associated with where they grew up on or were born on?
Have you ever driven down those roads to see a piece of New Jersey history? I am embarrassed to say I have not taken that ride, and I can’t name those streets. Not until now.
But of course, I’m not just going to give them away.
Here are the three street names. Match them up with Jon Bon Jovi, Frank Sinatra and Bruce Springsteen. Then take a day off and drive down these roads. Our Garden State celebrities deserve it.
We all know that South St. is just a giveaway. So the big question becomes is Monroe or Robinhood the Sayreville street? If you put your chips on the guy who steals from the rich and gives to the poor, you got it right.
Bruce- South St, Freehold
Jon- Robinhood Dr, Sayreville
Frank- Monroe St. Hoboken
So, if you didn't know that already, you do now. Time for a few New Jersey history road trips!
