The late James Gandolfini will be honored Sunday in his native New Jersey borough of Park Ridge where an avenue will be named for him.

Borough of Park Ridge officials say Dec. 1 will be declared James Gandolfini Day, and at a ceremony on Sunday, will designate Park Avenue at the intersection of Kinderkamack Road James Gandolfini Way.

Gandolfini was a native of Park Ridge and a graduate of Park Ridge High School. He graduated from Rutgers University.

When "The Sopranos" star died of a heart attack in Italy in June, he was mourned by Gov. Christie as a "true Jersey guy."
