Election night on Dekalb Avenue

Just before 11:00pm, there were a few people outside milling about on Dekalb Avenue, all just waiting for the moment when the tv networks might “call” the election. At 11:00pm sharp the networks called it… and as though the Giants won the Super Bowl (a long-shot fantasy, to be sure… but bear with us here)… the crowds swelled in the streets, neigbhors in PJ’s, others with their dogs came out for a late-night stroll, and still others who didn’t know what to do but just know they had to be outside in this great neighborhood at this moment in time.

Check out these videos for a taste of the energy that was in the air on that very special day.
