The longtime Univision TV host Don Francisco got a hero’s welcome from the hundreds of fans who battled the heat in a small New York City plaza in the Dominican neighborhood of Washington Heights.

“Don Francisco thank you! For so many years of smiles and great humor!” a fan poster read as the beloved Chilean waved at the crowd at Mitchel Square.

Don Francisco, whose real name is Mario Kreutzberger, was in New York Tuesday as the city was honoring him by naming a stretch of 167th Street after him. It will bear the name “Don Francisco Blvd” in honor of Kreutzberger, whose last episode of “Sabado Gigante” airs on Sept. 19 after 53 years on the air.
