Famed Chinese Pianist Lang Lang was named New York City's first-ever Cultural Tourism Ambassador by Mayor Bill de Blasio on Tuesday, as part of the US-China Tourism Year events that promote travel and tourism between the United States and China.

Lang was also inducted into the Ride of Fame by the Grey Line Company, which operates the city's iconic double-decker sightseeing buses. He was also presented with a double-decker bus, with a permanent artwork and a special seat decorated with his photo and signature.

"I'm so excited, today will be a very long and beautiful memory that stays in my mind forever," Lang said at the induction ceremony on Sixth Avenue between 43rd and 44th Street outside Steinway Hall in the Borough of Manhattan.
