Eyes on the Street: Obama Takes Manhattan
A scene from Midtown early this morning, after Barack Obama was named president-elect.
On the A downtown from Inwood, new passengers were welcomed with screams and cheers at every stop. It was standing room only by the time the train reached 42 Street.
New Yorkers lined the sidewalks in Times Square. Cars rolled through slowly, drivers honking, with passengers hanging from windows waving Obama signs.
Unlike Times Square, by 2 a.m. NBC’s "Election Plaza" at Rockefeller Center had pretty much cleared out.
