Turns Out There Actually Is A Way To Get To Sesame Street Now In New York

Welp, this is probably the most unassailably cute thing you’re gonna see all day: Sesame Street is turning 50 this year (50! Ha ha ha) and in recognition of one of the more culturally significant TV shows in the history of the medium, New York City officials honoured the show by naming a Manhattan street after them.

As in, there is now an actual, very real, no fooling Sesame Street. On the map. Forever. How bloody cool.

NYC city leaders officially renamed W 63rd and Broadway, a stone’s throw from Central Park, in honour of the iconic and enduring kid’s series in a formal ceremony overnight.

Flanked by NYC Mayor Bill de BlasioSesame Street sent Big BirdGrover, and a host of others to accept the honour, with Big Bird even throwing on his best and fanciest tie for the occasion.

How sweet and cool is that!

The Sesame Street gang didn’t limit their time in New York to just the ceremony either; Grover and Elmo took some time out of their busy schedule to do a little sightseeing, which included a trip to the top of the Empire State Building and one of the cutest photos of all time.

If you happen to be swinging through New York anytime soon and want to add it to your list of things to see, it’s right here near the south-western end of Central Park.

How’s that for location? Right near Julliard and Geffen Hall, spitting distance from Tavern On The Green, and right across the road from a dang Duane Reed.

It’s a tick in every box.
