More Sopranos Locations!
This is the location where Adriana La Cuerva (Drea De Mateo) met with Agent Harris (Matt Servitto) in season 4. This bakery located in the downtown area of the Village of Ridgewood has an interesting Tudor architecture. Located next to the New Jersey Transit Bergen Line Tracks, filming was suspended periodically to allow "The way to Go" trains to run on schedule to Hoboken.
This is Anthony, Soprano's, Jr. (Robert Iler) girlfriend, Devin's house. This private estate located in West Orange has beautifully landscaped grounds, a carriage house and even a private helicopter landing pad. Besides the location of Devin's residence, the scene where Rosalie Aprile (Sharon Angela) and Carmela Soprano (Edie Falco) are collecting diapers for single mothers was filmed in this house. I was fortunate to have been in the interior of this mansion and the inside is even more fabulous than the exteriors. I sampled some of the chef's delicacies and they were top notch and out of this world. The interior features a theatre and an atrium. The house also, which you can't see, has a statue and fountain garden, which is the house wraps around.
Lodi Pizza located on Route 46 West played host to the Sopranos early in season 3. A new character Ralphie Cifaretto (Joe Pantoliano) was introduced to The Sopranos. Ralph originally from Florida, soon became Tony Sopranos biggest headache. I guess Ralph doesn't have to worry about headaches anymore.
Some really great people like Chrissy and Anthony attended Lodi High School. Rumor was that the Sopranos location scouts had also investigated the possibility of using Clifton Senior High, but it looks like Lodi High School won the Sopranos Location lottery. The Sopranos filmed the scene where Paulie Walnuts (Tony Sirico) threatens the principal of the school about the mothers negative treatment of Nuna Gualtieri in the Green Grove Nursing Home. When Paulie still wasn't satisfied, after his little chat, he sent his goons, Bennie Fazio (Max Casella) to terrorize the principal in the hallways.
The exterior of Senator Zellman (Peter Reigert) is filmed inside this office building located in downtown, Newark, New Jersey. The exterior is a building located in Jersey City, NJ.
Senator Zellman and Tony Soprano (James Gandolfini) were involved in a lucrative scam involving the purchase of dilapidated properties and using phony appraisals selling them at a profit to desperate minority wanting to have the American Dream of home ownership. This scene was filmed in East Orange near the Newark border. I returned a year later and the house you see was had suffered a mysterious fire.
The scene were Christopher Moltisanti (Michael Imperioli) was carjacked while trying to score some illegal drugs. This neighborhood located in Newark, New Jersey was wet down with water trucks that had to be brought in to give the appearance of recent rains, which at the time New Jersey was suffering a drought. I wonder have Chris felt about someone else doing the jacking instead of him.
In season four many of us were relieved to know that Furio Guinta (Federico Castelluccio) finally had somewhere to live. This house located in Belleville New Jersey, was featured in many scenes in The Sopranos. The house features a detached garage, which was converted by the Sopranos carpenters into a cottage which was to house Furio's mother who was to arrive soon from Italy. Unfortunately, for Carmela, Furio returned to Italy and assigned the sale of the house to a local realtor. No word whether Furio will return for season 5.
The exterior of Svetlana's house is also located in Belleville, New Jersey. If you think back, Tony confronts Svetlana about Carmela discovering their little tryst. Svetlana explains that a disgruntled employee of her business, spilled the beans. Svetlana Kirilenka is played by Alla Kliouka a famous dancer in her homeland of Russia.
On a dark night Johnny Sack (Vincent Curatola) and Tony Soprano to discuss mutual issues. Johnny Sack took the opportunity to complain about his dissatisfaction with Carmines management techniques. Tony sympathized with Johnny but you can tell that Tony really didn't want to get involved in New York business.
