Scenes from the Women’s March on New York protesting the inauguration of Donald Trump. An estimated 250,000 women, men, and children marched across 42nd Street and up Fifth Avenue today to Trump Tower in a show of solidarity with the Women’s March on Washington and marches across the country and around the world. In my 26 years of covering demonstrations in New York City, this was by far the largest and the most diverse.
On the longest night of the year you can lift your spirits in the Dyker Heights neighborhood in Brooklyn, where the neighbors vie to present the most elaborate holiday lights.
Covering election night 2016 at the Javits Center in New York was an almost surreal experience, with a huge crowd of Hillary Clinton supporters and many thousands of journalists enduring a long evening of hope that faded into disappointment, then tears. The candidate herself never appeared.
