NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) – The Muppets are taking Manhattan, again!
Mayor Michael Bloomberg has recruited Kermit the Frog, Miss Piggy, Gonzo the Great, Pepe the King Prawn and the rest of the gang as family ambassadors this year in his campaign to bring more visitors to the city.
“The Muppets believe in dreaming big – just like New Yorkers,” Bloomberg said. “Extending the NYC Family Ambassador program beyond the summer and for the entire year will aid us in attracting more family visitors year round and therefore help us reach our goal of attracting 55 million visitors to New York City annually by 2015.”
