Sesame Street Highlight Reel of What We Are Debut!

The Intrepid Sea, Air and Space Museum is a military and marine history museum in New York City, opened in 1982.

In 2012, it hosted the launch of "Little Children, Big Challenges", the public face of Sesame Workshop's Resilience Initiative. The launch event included Matt Rogers, Roscoe Orman as Gordon, Elmo and Rosita.

During Kids Week 2011, February 21 was Puppet Day. Among the highlights were a sing-along with Roscoe Orman and John Tartaglia's Imagine Ocean the Musical.[1] Kids Week 2012 included an appearance of Sesame Street Live characters.[2]

The museum is on the decommissioned USS Intrepid (CV-11), an air craft carrier from 1943 to 1974, and includes the USS Growler, a Concorde SST, a Lockheed A-12 supersonic reconnaissance plane, and the Space Shuttle Enterprise. The Intrepid was set to be scrapped in 1978, before a developer/philanthropist and a journalist saved it; it became a National Historic Landmark in 1986.
