During the filming of the Sopranos finale, James Gandolfini, who died yesterday from a heart attack, was “really, really nice to the staff, giving autographs and taking pictures,” Chris Carley, the owner of Holsten’s ice-cream parlor in Bloomfield, New Jersey, says. “One night, at 1 a.m., he brought in a whole bunch of sushi at his own cost. Just a really nice guy.” Last night, a “reserved” sign was placed at the booth made famous by the show’s final scene.
