More than a decade ago, TV Guide put out “Sopranos Companion,” a special magazine about the HBO series “The Sopranos.”
We recently discovered a copy at a yard sale. Inside was a map of “Soprano Land,” with a cool section on the Meadowlands. Sadly, the map did not include Pizza Land in North Arlington.
The series reinforced some old stereotypes of the region but also gave it some newfound notoriety.
We can only guess how popular the series would have been if it featured more Meadowlands sunsets, egrets, skimmers and terrapins.
