JERSEY CITY, N.J., Aug. 31 (UPI) -- Interest is thick for bricks from the New Jersey building used as the exterior of the fictional hangout for Tony Soprano and his pals, the store's owner says.

The building made famous from HBO's drama "The Sopranos" is being demolished for a condo development, and Manny Costeira said plans to sell bricks from the white stoneface building have gone better than hoped, The Jersey Journal in Jersey City, N.J., reported Friday.

"We have received more than 3,000 serious offers since we started the Web site," Costeira said. "We did not expect that type of response."

Offers have come in from around the world -- from places such as Canada and New Zealand -- he said. With such keen interest, Costeira said he fears he might not be able to sell everybody a chunk of Soprano history.

"I don't know how many bricks we are going to have," he said. "We may have as many as 2,000 or as little as 500. We are trying to see how many we can salvage, but that's not an easy process."

Costeira said a price hasn't been set, but it would be "affordable."
