Fittingly, diuring the upcoming anniversary week of September 11, one of New York City’s most famous and loyal sons is singer Marc Anthony, who is celebrating his home town by urging people to ride the town’s Gray Line.
Gray Line is New York City’s American owned premier double-decker bus and motorcoach tourism company, and honored singer-songwriter, actor, producer and New York icon, Marc Anthony is their newest “Ride of Fame” dedicatee at Pier 78 yesterday.
The event was a ribbon-cutting ceremony where Anthony unveiled his own Gray Line New York bus with his likeness on the front of the vehicle. Mark addressed the crowd with words of gratitude and sentiment, prior to revealing the front of the bus for all to see.
“A lot of my dreams came true on these streets. Today, to see this kind of recognition in a city that means so much to me is absolutely overwhelming and to receive it in a landscape that means so much to me and that I understand is an honor beyond belief,” Anthony stated. He then proceeded to act as a tour guide to his fans on top of the bus, and said into the microphone, “This is a great way to the see the city, right?”
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, whom they identify as exemplary community figures by bestowing a bus in their fleet to each dedicatee.Note the date on this article may be incorrect due to importing it from our old system.
