A Bruce Springsteen Question

by Moa Petersdotter
(Stockholm,Sweden)

Hi!!!


I´m a big fan of Bruce Springsteen. I was wondering if there is any tour you can take in freehold to see all the "hot spots" from Bruce's songs?
Thank you for your help!
Best regards Moa Petersdotter


Hi Moa,
Unfortunatley there is no "tour" of Bruce Springsteens hot spots in Freehold. However, Freehold is very small town and if you can get there by car, I would suggest you stop by the last house he lived in at 68 South St. , the Catholic elementary school he went to, St Rose Lima, also on South St., Freehold High School on 2 Robertsville Road where he went, and the old Rug Mill (now refurbished) he sang about, located on the corner of Jackson St & Center St. If you have time, you may want to drive to Asbury Park (30 minutes from Freehold) to see the Stone Pony and Convention Hall where he often performs.

Hope you are able to make it,
Frank Dalotto

Planning a trip to Freehold to visit Bruce Springsteen Home Town

by Therese Rovde

Hi, I wonder if you can help me: My plan is to give a trip to Freehold for my husband and myself, during springtime (or summer 2009). My husband is a big fan of Bruce Springsteen, so that is the biggest reason to visit New Jersey. Also we will like to enjoy other attractions, historic places and museums. Would you recommend hotel and how to get near the "spirit" of The Boss?

Hi Therese;
If you want to stay in Freehold, I would recommend the Radisson Hotel.
I suggest that you Arrive in NJ at Newark Airport, rent a car and drive to Freehold. To get a 'Spirit of the Boss'take a look at the last house he lived in at 68 South St., the Catholic elementary school he went to - St Rose Lima, also on South St., and Freehold High School on 2 Robertsville Road where he went to. Stop by the old Rug Mill (now refurbished) he sang about, located on the corner of Jackson St & Center St. If you have time, you may want to drive to Asbury Park, on the ocean (30 minutes from Freehold) to see the Stone Pony and Convention Hall where he often performs.
For information on Museums check out http://www.new-jersey-leisure-guide.com/New-Jersey-museums.html, and for information on Historic places, check out http://www.new-jersey-leisure-guide.com/historic-places.html
Also, Freehold is about 90 minutes from New York City and 90 minutes from Philadelphia where you can take in a day trip to some great museums.

Best wishes on a successful trip.
