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 continuing "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.
"New York City has a very long and prominent history in
sports, and we're thrilled to honor the accomplished Henrik Lundqvist
for not only his contribution to one of New York's remarkable teams,
but also his charitable Garden of Dreams initiative." says David Chien,
Director of Marketing for Gray Line New York. "It is important to note
that the Ride of Fame celebrates the achievements of 'exemplary New
Yorkers', and not simply those of 'native New Yorkers'. Mr. Lundqvist
is the perfect example of us non-native New Yorkers contributing."
Lundqvist will be the fourth inductee to be honored by Gray
Line New York, for his exemplary representation of New York City.
The dedication will include the revealing of Lundqvist's signature,
open-top, red double-decker bus that millions of sightseers will be
able to "ride" each day moving forward. Gray Line New York's "Ride of
Fame" campaign includes a monthly dedication with other commendable
New Yorkers to follow. For more information, please visit, www.newyorksightseeing.com.
