Abbey Road Studios may deserve the status, but the crosswalk is what attracts people, i.e. tourist revenue.  All you need is lolly. 

I'd agree with you, but then we'd both be wrong.

Abbey Road was the greatest album by Beatles, if not for me or you but for music lovers this road has lot of meanings.
