In honor of Sesame Street's 50th anniversary, there is a new street sign up.
Sesame Street is at the intersection of Broadway and West 63rd Street.
There is a lot of Sesame history on that block.Across the street is the Empire Hotel, where once upon a time huge neon letters were hoisted up the building.
To the right is Lincoln Center, where a number of Sesame clips with Big Bird and Snuffy.
In the building next to the sign used to be the CTW offices.
And Mayor Bill DeBlasio did something neat. He decided the sign will be a permanent fixture.
So now you can go to New York, and legitimately ask somebody, "Can you tell me how to get to Sesame Street?"
I've been on this corner a number of times over the years, but now to be permanently enshrined by Sesame Street is really special. And it is a nice neighborhood. Plenty of places to eat, Central Park is a block away, best to go in the Spring or Fall. Summer and Winter in New York, not so much.
Summer heat and Winter cold are both brutal.
Yeah, I have had volumes 1, 2, 8, 11 and 12 since I was a little kid, I got volumes 10 and 13 from a thrift store a few years ago and I had volume 3 when I was little but I don't have it anymore. I remember being jealous of my cousins and best friend since they each had a complete set. The set I got is pretty good, some of the books are in bad condition and some are in good condition
