NEW YORK (CBSNewYork/AP) – The Muppets may have taken Manhattan, but they’re getting a fancy new home in Queens.
The museum plans to build a new gallery to house the new contributions. The city is chipping in $2.75 million toward the $5 million project.
As WCBS 880’s Rich Lamb reported, Mayor Michael Bloomberg shared the stage with Miss Piggy for the announcement Tuesday.
MISS PIGGY: “Oh yes, the moment you’ve been waiting for: His Honor meets Her Highness!”
MAYOR BLOOMBERG: “Yes, you should know that Ms. Piggy and I go back a long way. We even acted together in ‘The Muppets Letters To Santa.'”
MISS PIGGY: “Yes you were wonderful, almost life-like.”
BLOOMBERG: “It’s kind of you, actually, to say so.”
