For 50 years, children have wondered whatthe answer to the question, “Can you tell me how to get? How to get to Sesame Street,?” is.  Now, thanks to New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio, the answer is clear: Go to Manhattan’s Upper West Side.

In celebration of Sesame Street’s 50th anniversary, the city renamed the southeast corner of West 63rd Street and Broadway as Sesame Street at a ceremony attended by the mayor and multiple beloved Sesame Street dignitaries including Cookie Monster, Grover, Ernie, and Count von Count.

The Sesame Street gang led the crowd in singing “Sunny Days,” the show’s theme song.

The corner was chosen because it’s adjacent to Sesame Workshop’s headquarters at 1900 Broadway.

Unlike the temporary renaming of 64th Street and Broadway ten years ago for Sesame Street’s 40th, this change is permanent.
