Photo Flash: 'FIDDLER' and SHE LOVES ME Casts Celebrate Sheldon Harnick with RIDE OF FAME

Today was a very special day for the Broadway community and one that Sheldon Harnick will never forget. The RIDE OF FAME teamed up with the City of New York and the casts of Tony-nominated shows FIDDLER ON THE ROOF and SHE LOVES ME to present lyrical legend Harnick with another curtain call to celebrate his career and upcoming Lifetime Achievement Tony Award at the young age of 92. Scroll down for photos!

Harnick, the lyricist for both shows and whose stage doors are both on W. 53rd St., was inducted into the RIDE OF FAME with a permanent double decker bus that will serve as a mobile tribute to the musical icon. In addition, W. 53rd St. between Broadway and Eighth Ave. was temporarily renamed "Harnick and Bock Way."

Joining Sheldon at the ceremony were the stars of both shows, including: Jane Krakowski, Laura Benanti, Zachary Levi (She Loves Me) and Danny Burstein (Fiddler on the Roof).

The RIDE OF FAME is a continuing series of worldwide mobile monuments dedicated to public figures who highlight and promote their respective cities with their business and personal endeavors. Each honoree is bestowed with a double-decker bus designated with a permanent "Immortal", "IT" and "Imminent" classification artwork, and a personal seat with a private message to the world.
