Frank Sinatra Drive set to reopen Friday

HOBOKEN - Hoboken's Frank Sinatra Drive is finally ready to reopen after closing last year when a 60-foot sinkhole opened in the middle of the street.

In the two blocks that were forced to close, a number of establishments were affected, including a restaurant and other businesses. Property value was also negatively impacted. Bartender Kerry Murray says the reopening of the street will reignite business. Murray tells News 12 New Jersey, "Since the sinkhole, business has been really slow. We see a lot of our regulars still, but not a lot of new faces."

The street is set to reopen to foot and road traffic Friday at noon after $2 million in repairs.
