'Tell 'em Jimmy sent you' - Little Italy is transformed to 1975

STORY: For 48 hours visitors to New York's Little Italy will step into the '70s as Netflix promotes the release of the new film, "The Irishman."

The film, a saga of organized crime in America spanning several decades, chronicles the mysterious disappearance in 1975 of labor union boss Jimmy Hoffa, played by Al Pacino.

Actors dressed in bell bottoms, platforms, pageboy hats and carrying fake newspapers dated August 1, 1975, the day Hoffa went missing, have turned the sidewalk into their stage as they playfully interact with the public.

Several businesses in the area have joined in on the promotion by offering free food and services to customers who tell them "Jimmy sent me."

The event will be held on November 22 and 23 at 11 locations on Grand, Mott and Mulberry streets.
