Oral History Chapbook Party
The latest Oral History Project chapbook features Peter “Chipper” Falco, one of the founders of the 40-year-old Hoboken Motorcycle Club, who shared his recollections of living in Sinatra’s childhood home, the origins of his nickname, HMC parties and charity events, and the long-lasting influence of the film, Easy Rider.

Editor Holly Metz and designer Ann Marie Manca have created a chapbook from Chipper’s recollections, “Two-Wheel Man, Recollections of Peter “Chipper” Falco.”
Two-Wheel Man, Chipper Falco
Meet Chipper on Sunday, December 1, at 4 p.m., at the Museum, as the Museum and the Friends of the Hoboken Public Library celebrate the publication of this new booklet–our 26th since we began publishing them in 2002–with some of the club’s Harleys on view outside and much shared history, food, and drink inside. The event is free and copies of the chapbook will be distributed to all who attend.
