One of television’s most famous crime families turns 20 years old.
HBO’s “The Sopranos” first aired Jan. 10, 1999. The show became a cultural phenomenon and features many real locations around New Jersey.
The show is so popular that to this day New York-based tour company On Location Tours runs bus trips all around New Jersey taking “Sopranos” fans to the famous spots in North Jersey.
There’s the Irish American Association building in Kearny that served as the location of the Italian American Association in the show. The pork store that Tony Soprano and his crew would hang out at. There is Satin Dolls in Lodi, which served as the BadaBing Club. They get to see the Pulaski Skyway as well.
“I’ve been doing this 17 years and we still sell out,” says tour guide Mark Baron.
The tour ends at Holsen’s Ice Cream Shop in Bloomfield – which is featured in the very last episode of the show. Fans get to take turns sitting in Tony Soprano’s booth and take pictures.
“The Sopranos” tour runs weekly, with some additional tours added depending on demand. Tour guides say that lately they have had to add extra tours. It runs about four hours. More information can be found on the company's website.
