Jersey Peeps.

I liked this one, despite the omission of one very notable Garden Stater who happens to have great farookin’ hair.

N.B. I have not verified the Jersey bona fides of each person shown or the criteria for inclusion (e.g. Einstein was not born here), but I like it anyway and dat’s dat.


  1. I find it gratifying that they didn’t forget Concetta Franconero.

  2. Mrs. Parkway’s late uncle was very good friends with the Franconero family and has lots of pictures of him hanging with the family, including Concetta who was just a kid at the time.

  3. I dunno, Jimbo…there’s an awful lotta people that the person who made that video claimed as Jerseystock…like, suspiciously a lot.

    Who knows…maybe they are all from Jersey.

    We got a handful here in Brooklyn (Neil Diamond, Barbra Streisand, Woody Allen, Steve Buscemi, etc), but nothing like what you got.

  4. Hey!

    You left ME out!

    Orange, New Jersey, 1949 – and decent farookin’ hair!

  5. The best Jersey story about Concetta Franconero is that her brother was the victim of a true NJ mob hit, shot to death in front of his home. No suspects.In the business, it was always said that the hitmen were on a plane heading out of State before the body was removed from the scene. Real life Soprano stuff…

    Who’s Sorry Now ???

  8. I’m embarrassed to admit that there was a handful of people in the video that I didn’t recognize.

    I grew up on the same block as Daisy Fuentes and feel compelled to tell all: When I’d go over her house to play with her little sister, Rosana, she never gave us the time of day. Didn’t like her then and still don’t like her now.
