Soprano Sue's Sightings
 


 

 

 

If you want to go to a really wonderful Soprano location, I strongly suggest that you take a visit to Holsten's Ice Cream Parlour located at 1063 Broad Street, Bloomfield, New Jersey. Conviently located off of the Watchung Avenue exit of the Garden State Parkway, visiting this location, you will definately know why New Jersey is such a special place (and why it was chosen as a location for The Sopranos). The story goes that David Chase decided on Holsten's because of the memories he had there when he grew up in New Jersey.

 

 

This is what the exterior of Holsten's Ice Cream Parlour looks like. This is the original facade, not a re created retro thing.

 

 

If you have a sweet tooth, I couldn't think of any type of candy or chocolate they don't carry. Their candies and ice cream are made on premise.

 

 

This is what the rear wall of the establishment is decorated with. It brings to mind, the pleasant thought of childhood.

 

 

This is behind the counter. Shelve of ice cream sunday glasses, and let me tell you I had one, and it was awesome! They need that many glasses because the item is that popular. They also make what is called an "egg cream"

 

 

This is a booth similar to the booth that Tony Soprano sat in.

 

 

 

 

This is one of the original mixers used to make milk shakes, yummy yummy!

 

 

One thing about this place, if you can't find something to satistfy your sweet tooth, Shop Rite is right down the street, may I suggest the baking isle for a 5 pound bag of straight sugar? They also carry an extensive line of sugar free products, a store that caters to all tastes.

 

 

Holsten's also carries an exclusive line of Holsten wear, including a T Shirt commorating being part of the final episode and televison history..

 

 

I wasn't kidding about the sheer amount of confectionary choices available for consumption (like right out of the bag in my car, only a few morsels made it home)
