By Paul Goldfinger, Editor @Blogfinger.net. from our series on the Sopranos at the Jersey Shore.

Late in the second season of the Sopranos, Tony is having nightmares. He is under the care of Dr. Jennifer Melfi, his shrink.  The scenes on the Asbury Boardwalk portrayed a dream sequence with a talking fish over by Convention Hall. The weather that day in June was a rare spring snow storm.

David Chase created the series which had six seasons and 86 episodes, and it ended in 2007.  There were over 500 New Jersey locations during the Soprano years.  Steven Van Zandt (Silvio) is an actor and musician from New Jersey and is a member of Springsteen’s E Street Band. Despite his name, he is Italian and he grew up in Middletown after the age of 7. Perhaps he had something to do with the Asbury location.
