A Sinatra-style crooner is getting rave reviews from New Yorkers as he belts out tunes at a construction site.

Gary Russo is a construction foreman who is working on a subway line.

Every day during lunch, he takes times to sing for his crew and fellow New Yorkers, and they seem to like it.

Russo is now being called "the Second Avenue Sinatra."

His brush with fame came thanks to a guy passing by who shot video of Russo and put it on YouTube.

Now, people are coming out to hear the noon concerts. Russo says he just wants to make folks smile.
