Happy 50th Anniversary Sesame Street

Sesame Street is celebrating its 50 year anniversary. The children’s series that approximately 6.2 million people watch each week, has evolved, keeping in step with a changing world of kids, the program still engages children through colorful characters like Big Bird, Grover, Julia, Rosita, and of course Elmo.

Originally airing on PBS, then moving to HBO, Sesame Street communicates a message of community to kids (and adults) teaching acceptance and collaboration, through lessons filled with fun, imagination, and friendship, while reflecting families of different makes and models.

I don’t know about you, but I’d love to go and play where the air is sweet, and everything’s A-OK right about now. Can you tell me how to get to Sesame Street? It’s somewhere in New York, however, Siri can’t seem to pinpoint the exact location.
