New York (NBC New York) -- If you're still looking how to get to "Sesame Street" — look no further than the west side of Manhattan.

As part of the show's 50th anniversary celebration, the intersection of West 63rd Street and Broadway has been renamed "Sesame Street," where the Sesame Workshop offices are located. And this time it's permanent.

"Fifty years of making people's lives better. Fifty years of having people believe in themselves," Mayor de Blasio said at the event, adding that he was thrilled to celebrate the show and its inclusive message.

Parents and children gathered around and smiled wide as Big Bird unveiled the new street sign displaying the name of the show that has touched the lives of kids in 150 countries.
