The lines to vote were slow moving Tuesday morning, but we were fortunate that the weather was gorgeous.
Watching the tally of votes Tuesday night, there was nothing so powerful as NBC's live coverage of various cities, without a voice over. The camera cut between Harlem, Rockefeller Center, Chicago, Atlanta and other cities. The screen was filled with cheering people waving American flags.
New York is such a progressive city, often New Yorkers feel like we live in a country of our own. Many of us were worried about what the rest of the country would do, during the elections. I'm happy to see that we were needlessly paranoid.
Anyhow, there it is. We've elected a new president. Fireworks were set off here, in Brooklyn.
Hopefully, there will be better days to come.
