Can You Tell Me How to Get to Sesame Street?

In recognition of Sesame Street’s 50th anniversary, city officials decided to designate in its honor.

New York City held the renaming event on May 1. A Sesame Street character asked New York Mayor Bill de Blasio: “Can you tell me how to get to Sesame Street?”

“Yes,” the mayor replied.

Mayor Bill de Blasio and City Councilwoman Helen Rosenthal performed the unveiling of the new official Sesame Street sign.

Attending the event were the beloved Sesame Street characters, who sang the show’s iconic theme song in celebration.
