There is a Crabtree & Evelyn shop now on Washington Street - and fancy cafes, too. If anybody had said that was going to happen when I was in college here - and when they were filming On the Waterfront down on the docks - he would have been laughed out of this rough and grubby old town. But now Hoboken has become chic. Yuppies are buying the "luxury condos" on Washington Street, the main drag. The rent on my old three-room fifth-floor walk-up at Ninth and Washington has gone from $60 to $850 a month.

A Frank Sinatra fan is planning to open a museum dedicated to the late singer in a space next door to his Hoboken, N.J., birthplace. "It's going to be really extra special," Ed Shirak Jr. said last week. The museum will open Dec. 12, Sinatra's birthday. It will house letters Sinatra wrote to Hoboken residents, photographs and personal possessions such as handkerchiefs and a suit he wore in the film Come Blow Your Horn. The inside of the 600-square-foot museum - now an old knickknack shop - will be laid out to resemble Marty O'Brien's, a bar Sinatra's father owned in Hoboken, and will feature a stage for live performances.

HOBOKEN, N.J. - Brian McCarthy moved here from Manhattan last year and came to love his huge apartment and short train ride into New York. His boyfriend planned to move in this month. Now, the couple can't get out of Hoboken fast enough. Hurricane Sandy crippled the Port Authority Trans-Hudson line, a 24-hour subway that last year ferried 76.6 million passengers between Manhattan and New Jersey. The entire system was out for two weeks after the storm. A link to the World Trade Center was out for four weeks, and the Hoboken line just restored service last week.

Senior Louis Roe scored 35 points and grabbed 18 rebounds last night to lead Atlantic City, the No. 1 team in The Inquirer's Top 10, to an 84-72 victory over previously undefeated Hoboken. Roe's efforts helped the Vikings (20-1) control the inside game. Atlantic City, ranked No. 5 in the state by the Newark Star-Ledger, outrebounded No. 8 Hoboken, 51-29. "Our board strength did it," said Atlantic City coach Joe Fussner. "We had scouted Hoboken and we knew they couldn't match up with us inside.

Evelyn Arroyo has added a new twist to the old political dirty trick of publishing pictures of an opponent in a compromising position. She's published one of herself. Arroyo, 21, who is running for a seat on the Hoboken school board, placed an advertisement in a weekly newspaper with a photo of herself wearing a clinging, off-the-shoulder silk negligee. "The politicians aren't supporting me, so I figured the only way I could win was to use my assets," said Arroyo, who appears in the picture in a coy pose with her arms wrapped around her drawn-up knees.

In the beginning, there was Hoboken and in the end, there was Beverly Hills. Between the North Jersey rivertown where Frank Sinatra was born and the affluent home to the stars where he spent his twilight years, there was a show-business career without peer, of course. But it was the shadow worlds of Hoboken and Beverly Hills we never knew - and Sinatra never wanted us to know - that were the bookends of his extraordinary life. Both helped define this man of enormous extremes and contradictions.

Matt, the friend, strolled in wearing Yankees garb. Dana's apartment was in Hoboken, but her heart was firmly in Philadelphia.

As she watches Mo'ne Davis mesmerize crowds at the World Series, Maria Pepe is overcome with as much pride as regret. More than 40 years ago, it was Pepe's love of baseball and her willingness to fight for her right to play that forced Little League to allow girls on teams. "It's nice to see that this has come so far for Mo'ne," Pepe said. "She's a beneficiary. " But while she is pleased that in a small way, she helped Taney's teenage pitching goddess ascend to the mound, Pepe still suffers an occasional twinge from an old sports injury.
