Maspeth’s famous GoodFellas Diner caught fire while vacant on Monday afternoon, the city’s Fire Department said.
The FDNY reported that it had received a call regarding a fire at the diner, which is located at 56-26 Maspeth Ave., at approximately 3:45 p.m.
More than 60 firefighters responded to the blaze, which was brought under control by 5:30 p.m.
Denise Diamantis, the co-owner of the diner, noted that the diner lost everything in the fire. No injuries were reported.
The GoodFellas Diner was once known as the Clinton Diner, but changed its name after Martin Scorsese directed a scene from his mob movie classic GoodFellas at the restaurant.
The film’s scene at the diner is of mobsters James Conway (Robert De Niro) and Henry Hill (Ray Liotta) receiving a phone call that their friend, “made man” Tommy DeVito (Joe Pesci), was killed.
