NEW YORK - An exhibit offering an intimate look at the life of Frank Sinatra is now open in New York.
This year would have been Sinatra’s 100th birthday. The Sinatra family opened its warehouse of his belongings for the first time to create the centennial exhibit at the New York City Public Library for the Performing Arts at Lincoln Center.
“All through their lives they understood the importance of Frank Sinatra. And so everything was saved," says executive director Jacqueline Davis.
Items in the exhibit include Sinatra’s Hoboken ID card from his childhood, family photos, Grammy awards, and even the Oscar he received for “The House I Live In.” But it's the music that may still leave the strongest impression.
“You go in the booth and you get to sing along with him,” says Davis.
The exhibit, "Frank Sinatra: An American Icon," is free and open until September.
