Actor and noted aviator John Travolta
flew to N.Y.C. on his personal Boeing 707 for a meeting with the Gotti family
as research for his upcoming film. But he also made time for something sweet – ice cream! Travolta popped into Serendipity 3 with a pal for a midnight snack – a banana split for him and a scoop of vanilla ice cream for the friend.
