I was at home on the uws and it was glorious. Everyone cheering in the street/on the sidewalks. What a great moment. Felt like the end of a war or something.

I was visiting NYC when this happened, and i remember cheering in the streets with everyone else, i literally was jumping up and down hi 5fiving with a female cop who was just crying tears of joy. It was a moment for sure. It was a beautiful day for everyone.

I was too!! The minute I heard I ran out on Columbus avenue in my pajamas and the streets were alive in the best way. I remember crying with a stranger in line at H and H bagels and hearing the cars and trucks blaring on their horns to celebrate with the crowds in the street. One of my favorite days ever

Omg exactly! So funny to know you’re in the area. We’ve probably walked by each other. I didn’t even hear it on the news, but when I suddenly heard cheering out of windows and in the street I knew, and ran out of my apt as well. So much joy and relief. I probably cried a little too.

Hahah we may have cheered together! It was announced in the only 10 min I did NOT have the news on and I heard my neighbor go “omg, Joe!” so I threw open my window and heard the cheers start peppering in and then immediately ran to the street. I was sobbing, and the first person I saw was a guy delivering stuff into the Bodega on Columbus and 84th and he said to m “what happened!?!” And through my sobs I just said “HE WON!” And the guy was like “OMG HE WON?!?” and we high-fived. Such a distinct moment shared with such little context. I’ll remember every moment of that day for the rest of my life, truly one of the best.
