New York City Names The Muppets Its Family Ambassadors
  |  @   |  

The Muppets have been named New York City Family Ambassadors by Mayor Michael Bloomberg and the city’s tourism and marketing organization, NYC & Company.

As part of the year-long honor, the Muppets will help to spread the word on New York City’s various family-friendly options for anyone traveling to any of the five boroughs, including food, shopping, attractions, parks, and cultural institutions. Those curious about where to visit can head to NYC’s family section, where the likes of Kermit the Frog will help with navigating, Miss Piggy will help with shopping, and, of course, the Swedish Chef will recommend restaurants.

Of being named family ambassadors to New York City, Kermit said:

“I’ve loved New York ever since I arrived in New York harbor and saw that the Statue of Liberty is green. What a welcome! New York is a great place for families, frogs, pigs, bears, and”¦uh, whatever’s to visit. We can’t wait to show the world the best ways to hop around the city!”

With Miss Piggy adding:

“New York is the most fabulous city in the world. In fact, it’s almost as fabulous as moi. So don’t just sit there! Get ready world! You’re about to take the ultimate diva’s tour of moi’s favorite city! Lucky vous!”

What do you think of the Muppets as New York City’s family ambassadors?
