First Lady Visits LIC

The neighborhood around Kaufman Astoria Studios on 36th Street between 34th and 35th Avenues went into lockdown yesterday, May 5, when First Lady Michelle Obama paid a visit to Elmo and his pals on the "Sesame Street" set at Kaufman Astoria Studios in Long Island City.

Police sources said that Obama visited the set of the popular children's show to film a segment that will be aired in the future.

The First Lady stopped by the "Sesame Street" set prior to her appearance at an engagement for Time Magazine last night.
