Earlier this week, stage and screen stars Mary Tyler Moore and Peters, who are also the co-founders of Broadway Barks, were honored by Gray Line New York, the Manhattan double-decker bus and motorcoach tourism company. As part of the company's Ride of Fame campaign, a ribbon-cutting ceremony was held Aug. 21 at Pier 78 on West 38th Street. A custom decal was unveiled on the front of the vehicle displaying Moore and Peters' likenesses, also incorporating a special edition poster designed by Bob Mackie for this year's 14th annual Broadway Barks.
