Thousands of journalists streamed into Manhattan from around the world Monday to cover what will hopefully be the last night of the most contentious presidential election in modern American history.
A mere 15 blocks separate the respective Republican and Democratic candidates’ Election Night headquarters, each candidate closing out their campaigns where they began, in New York City.
While Donald Trump’s campaign surprisingly selected a Hilton hotel a short walk from Trump Tower that is not a part of his real estate empire, Hillary Clinton’s camp chose the cavernous Javits Convention Center.
Perhaps the most telling details of each venue is that Trump’s event is billed as a “Victory Party,” and Clinton literally will be standing under a glass ceiling at the conclusion of her quest to become the first female president of the United States.
