NEW YORK — New York City is getting ready to welcome Egypt's boy pharaoh back to the city he wowed in 1979.
An exhibit of artifacts from King Tutankhamun's tomb will make its final stop in New York starting April 23. It is now at the de Young Museum in San Francisco.
The New York exhibit will take place at the Discovery Times Square Exposition.
To mark the first day of ticket sales Tuesday, a 25-foot statue of the jackal-headed god Anubis arrived by barge at South Street Seaport.
Former Mayor Ed Koch welcomed the deity and said he looked forward to seeing Tut's treasures again.
The 1979 King Tut exhibit attracted 1.8 million visitors at New York's Metropolitan Museum of Art.
