Both performed on the concrete platform that served as a bandstand at Franklin Pond. The photos were taken by the late Steven "Itchie" Novak, a local resident who captured many historic moments in the borough on film.

Damone, whose smooth baritone famously led Frank Sinatra to declare he "had the best pipes in the business", died at Mount Sinai Medical Center in Miami Beach, Florida, surrounded by several close relatives.

Legendary crooner Vic Damone died from complications of a respiratory illness on Sunday in Miami Beach, Fla., his daughter Victoria confirmed to the Associated Press.

He began his long career back in the 1940s, after being crowned the victor of a radio show called Arthur Godfrey's Talent Hunt.

He was a singer-songwriter, actor, TV and radio presenter best known for pop hits "You're Breaking My Heart", "On the Street Where You Live" (from My Fair Lady) and "My Heart Cries For You". His singing style remained the same over his entire career.

During a 1992 interview, Damone admitted that he loved Sinatra so much that he tried to imitate him, like many other artists did.

Damone then sang for Como, who encouraged him to continue performing, and by 1947 Damone had landed his first recording contract. Sinatra was astounded when the singer turned out to be Damone, live in the studio. He began singing by stopping the elevator between floors. His fifth wife, Rena Rowan-Damone, passed away in 2016. The role ultimately went to Al Martino.

In his autobiography, Singing Was the Easy Part, Damone claimed he had been held out of a window of a NY hotel by a gangster. "That wasn't my particular gift".

In his memoir, he write that his "gift was singing", not acting.

A son named after Perry Como, Perry Farinola Damone, died in 2014. They divorced in 1996.

Dame was married five times and is survived by his six grandchildren.
