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.
