As well it should be. Never has there ever been a more memorable place to cross the street!

This week, the crosswalk near Abbey Road studios, made famous by The Beatles and their album, aptly titled Abbey Road, was declared a historic landmark by the British government. The crossing was given Grade II status, an honor generally reserved for buildings of historic significance.

When reached for comment, Paul McCartney expressed his happiness with the recognition, acknowledging that it's been a "great year" for him and the Beatles and "hearing that the Abbey Road crossing is to be preserved is the icing on the cake."

We totally agree! An honor well deserved!

    Just so you know, this isn't actually that crossing on the front of the album. They had to move it down the road a little.

    And it's called a zebra crossing

    Please. It's been an historic landmark since the album came out in 1969.
    It just didn't have some stuffed suit make it official. Everyone and their dog
    gets this photo if they're nearby when they're across the pond. Classic tunes.
