(5) Sun Dec 21 2008 10:18 Where Is It? A Continuing Series: We watched a Sesame Street video in which the Sesame Street subway station was visible. The lines accessible from that station are the 1, 2, A, and B. I say this puts Sesame Street in the West Village around 4th street. The Muppet wiki has more.
I always thought they were supposed to be in Queens? That is, after all, where the air is clean.

Evan, wasn't it you and I who came up with the idea of explaining the financial crisis through Sesame Street??

I thought it was supposed to be modeled after Brooklyn Heights.
According to http://www.thestranger.com/seattle/Content?oid=2681 it was originally planned to be at 123 Avenue B, in the lower east side. But I don't know how trustworthy a source that is.
