Celebrating John Travolta Day In Brooklyn 6/13/18

Wednesday, June 13th

June 12th has been declared John Travolta day in Brooklyn, and fans turned out in the thousands to have a good old fashioned block party and celebrate the guy who put 86th street on the map!

Travolta showed up to meet fans and promote his new movie “Gotti” outside Lenny’s Pizza. It was obvious as the crowd built larger and larger that John’s Brooklyn fans adore him for putting Bensonhurst in the spotlight in “Saturday Night Fever” (especially that iconic opening scene!).

He was gracious to his fans with his wife Kelly Preston by his side, taking photos and signing autographs for as many people as he could. He did a little strut when Stayin’ Alive came on and even went up to the booth of Lenny’s Pizza to recreate his “two slices” line in the opening scene of the movie.

WCBS-FM's Joe Causi hosted the event, which was put together by Travolta’s co-star in the “Gotti” movie Will DeMeo (he plays Sammy “The Bull” Gravano), Louie Louie turned into a big fanboy as he re-lived his days walking up 86th street as a kid, and Brad Blanks was determined to get that interview with John Travolta….it turned out he would be the only one to get a few seconds with Tony Manero on this special day!
