NEW YORK CITY (WFLA/NBC) – Now you can actually ask your GPS how to get to the most famous street on TV.

Wednesday morning, New York City renamed the intersection of Broadway and West 63rd Street, “Sesame Street”.

And many familiar friends were there for the occasion Big Bird, Elmo, Oscar the Grouch, Grover as well as many of the humans who helped so many children learn their letters and numbers over the years.

New York City Mayor Bill De Blasio proclaimed May 1 “Sesame Street Day”.

It’s all a part of the 50th anniversary of the beloved children’s program.
