Photo Flash: Bernadette Peters and Mary Tyler Moore Welcomed into Gray Line's Ride of Fame Campaign

Gray Line New York, New York City's premier sightseeing and tourism company, today, August 22, 2012, honored stage and screen icons, and Broadway Barks co-founders, Bernadette Peters and Mary Tyler Moore by welcoming them into the Ride of Fame campaign. Peters, who was on-site to receive this honor, participated in a ribbon-cutting ceremony to unveil the custom decal featuring her and Moore's likenesses on the front of one of Gray Line New York's iconic double-decker buses. Check out photos of Peters at the event below!

Peters also revealed a special edition poster designed by the legendary Bob Mackie, celebrating this year's 14th annual Broadway Barks, the Peters/Moore-founded dog and cat adoption event produced by Broadway Cares/Equity Fights Aids.

Since 1926, Gray Line New York has been a proud staple of the New York City tourism industry, bringing visitors to all the must-see stops in New York City on its signature red double-decker tour buses. Now with its Ride of Fame campaign, Gray Line New York is recognizing and honoring leading New Yorkers and iconic New York establishments, whom they identify as exemplary community figures and entities by bestowing a bus in their fleet to each dedicatee.

This will be the first occasion where two legendary celebrities are inducted onto one bus. Past honorees include: Liza Minnelli, Donald Trump, Whoopi Goldberg, Richard Dreyfuss, Rachael Ray, New York Ranger, Henrik Lundqvist, Cyndi Lauper, Marc Anthony, Kenneth Cole and legendary New York Yankee, Reggie Jackson.
