Big Bird, Cookie Monster, Elmo and more of the “Sesame Street” gang were on hand to commemorate the event. They even sang the show’s iconic theme song “Sunny Days.”

In 2009, NYC temporarily renamed a street for its 40th anniversary, but this time, it’s forever.

The iconic children’s show aired on PBS since the premiere in November 1969. In 2016, it moved to HBO.
