"When you smear on that cream cheese, or lox or just plain butter it's heaven," Brooklyn Borough President Marty Markowitz said.

Bell said he will also be supplying bagels at the hospitality suite in Park City, UT where the Sundance Film Festival will be kicking off Friday – and yes, he will be sending green bagels there too.

"When the actors and actresses sit down to eat they can sit down and watch our Jets win this Sunday," Bell said.

Fifty-one Big Apple related films have been submitted to the festival.
