Fans of the Francis Ford Coppola’s film, “The Godfather,” have a rare chance to pick up a piece of cinema and Staten Island history: the original blueprints of the Corleone “mall.”

The actual Tudor Revival home that formed the basis for Don Vito Corleone’s compound at 110 Longfellow Avenue in Emerson Hill, Staten Island, sold in 2012 (it was asking $2.1 million). But the blueprints offer a rare glimpse inside not just the home, but also the Don’s office, guardhouse and the entire set design for the wedding scene, according to Curbed.

Curbed notes that for the film, five homes on Longfellow Avenue were surrounded with a “fake brick wall and wrought-iron gate, turning the street leading up to the house into part of a sprawling well-guarded retreat.”

The plans are estimated to fetch $733 through RR Auction. [Curbed] Christopher Cameron
