It took 40 years, but earlier today Sesame Street was honored with their own corner of New York (64th and Broadway, to be exact). We're told, "On the eve of the program’s big birthday, a temporary street sign was unveiled and a Mayoral Proclamation bestowed by the City of New York, proclaiming November 10 Sesame Street Day.” Do we get off for that?

The show's creator, Joan Ganz Cooney, said: “Sesame Street reaches children around the world, but without a doubt, New York City is its home. It’s wonderful for the city to recognize where it all began.” How will you celebrate?
