GREENWICH VILLAGE, Manhattan (WABC) -- New Yorkers can now walk on a rainbow in Greenwich Village just in time for the Pride March.

DOT crews painted a rainbow crosswalk Saturday onto the iconic intersection of 7th Avenue and Christopher Street to celebrate WorldPride.

It marks the third year in a row the crosswalk near the Stonewall Inn has been painted in a colorful show of support for the LGBT community.

The Stonewall Inn was declared a national monument to honor gay rights in 2016. This year marks 50 years since the Stonewall uprising fueled the fire for a global LGBTQ movement.
