Locations used in the Opening Credits of The Sopranos

These are our intelligent guesses

The Locations used opening credits of The Sopranos is the conduit that made me watch the show. Prior to seeing the opening credits, when I saw "The Sopranos" on my menu guide I figured that it was a television program about a bunch of stupid singers.   Once I saw the Cemetery and the Route One and Nine sign, I was hooked, I had to watch just to figure out what locations I could figure out.      Half the fun of watching the show The Sopranos, is trying to figure out the locations, but lately that challenge hasn't been that hard.

  • The ceiling of the Lincoln Tunnel going west to New Jersey, Tony is driving in the north tube (end) and drives up the helix to Route 3 West  (why do people from New York look so sad, New Jersey is the light at the end of the tunnel)

  • New Jersey Turnpike sign (Secaucus)

  • WTC, The World Trade Center (in episodes prior to 9/11/2001, episodes after the World Trade Center Buildings were removed because show is time current)

  • Cash Only lane entrance to NJ Turnpike at 16W.    This view is no longer like this since the conversion to the Easy Pass system

  • Tony Soprano (James Gandolfini) takes a ticket

  • New Jersey Turnpike in the vicinity of Newark Airport (renamed Newark Liberty Airport), where the Turnpike is a 16 lane highway

  • view of Kearny, New Jersey from the Turnpike

  • View of the Goethals bridge from northbound truck lane side of the New Jersey Turnpike

  • The old Hydrop_u_f  factory located in "The Neck" section of Newark, New Jersey

  • View looking east from the New Jersey Turnpike extension (between exits 14 and 14 C) (in Jersey City) going eastbound towards the Holland Tunnel to New York

  • View of the Statue of Liberty from the Turnpike extension

  • The Carteret tank farms as viewed from the southbound New Jersey Turnpike between exits 13a and exit 12

  • Port Newark (a major shipping facility of the east coast)

  • General Pulaski Skyway

  • Linden Refineries

  • Route 1/9 north truck route bridge crossing the Hackensack River from Kearny into Jersey City, New Jersey

  • Turnpike, western extension as seen from the eastern extension 

  • Route 7 bridge from Jersey City going towards Kearny, New Jersey

  • Rail Road Bridge as seen from Route 21 North (North Newark/Belleville border)

  • Sacred Heart Basilica Cathedral, Newark, New Jersey (The Pope spoke here during a visit to the United States)  

  • From "Ronnie"   "This is the overhead shot of Conrail's Oak Island Yard located under the Turnpike just north of Exit 14 and the Bayonne Extension Bridge.   If you look closely you can see a tri level carrier's ready to depart for points west.  I have worked at that yard and I believe I took that train out of there the day those were photographed.    I was called for ML-401 which carries auto racks back west for loading.    I got my train on "2 Middle" the track which is shown in the opening montage.    That train usually originates in Doremus Avenue, however this day there was a derailment in that yard making it impossible to depart from there.   Those tracks were swung up to that track from the east end of Oak Island for departure.    They haven't been up there since."  Thank you Ronnie for sharing this great description!

  • North eastern view of The Meadowlands as seen from the Route 7 between Jersey City and Kearny, NJ.   In the background is The New Jersey Turnpike between exits 15 W and 16W, the tall building are Harmon Cove condominiums in Secaucus, New Jersey

  • Valley Landscaping water tower located on the east Route 21 north in Newark, New Jersey near Route 280, you also see the Sunoco Gas station sign which is located right before tank

  • Muffler Man (The Wilson House of Carpet Man), located on Route 1/9 in Jersey City, south of Route 7 (Charlotte Circle) under the General Pulaski Skyway

  • The Cemetery located on the north side of Route 7 (and Porete Avenue) in North Arlington, going east right before Schluyer Avenue intersection

  •  Pulaski Savings and Loan, formerly located on Frank E. Rodgers Blvd, Harrison, New Jersey

  • Satriales Pork Shop, located on Kearny Avenue, Kearny, New Jersey

  • Not quite sure on this one, but 2 opinions are that this street is Bergen Avenue, Jersey City, one block south of Montgomery Avenue

  • Pizzaland located on Route 7 westbound North Arlington, prior to the Ridge Road intersection

  • Belgrove Drive, Kearny, New Jersey

  • Southbound on Mountain Avenue, Caldwell, New Jersey
