A lotta famous residents from NJ will soon get repped alllll along the Garden State Parkway! This is pretty cool, NJ is honoring a handful of famous residents as a part of Gov. Murphy's plan to expand the NJ Hall of Fame.
Among those to have received the special nod include Jon Bon Jovi, Whitney Houston and late Sopranos actor James Gandolfini. The Boss, however, is reported to have declined the proposal.
Bruce Springsteen has turned down the opportunity to have a service station in his home state of New Jersey named after him.
“Bruce Springsteen respectfully declined to have a service area named after him,” said New Jersey Hall Of Fame spokeswoman Natasha Alagarasan.
The rest stops will also feature a display curated by the New Jersey Hall Of Fame, including exhibits, artefacts and a video monitor that screens vignettes on the inductees as well as posters designed by New Jersey architect Michael Grave.
