To some, disco never died. 'Saturday Night Fever' fans will probably be thrilled to learn that the Bay Ridge house where John Travolta’s Tony Manero primped for a night out at the disco is back on the market for $2.3 million.

The three-story, four-bedroom, three-and-half-bath fully detached house at 221 79th St. (shown top) was built in the 1920s, and has had some major upgrades in recent years. It now offers a mix of the old and the new, with historic details like crown moldings and plaster ceiling medallions alongside modern features such as a private heated driveway and a climate-controlled garage.
