Block parties take over Brooklyn streets with Biden, Harris supporters
Some Brooklyn residents were not shy in sharing their excitement when it was announced Joe Biden and Kamala Harris won the election.
On Saturday evening, people took to the streets with balloons, singing and dancing.
From Grand Army Plaza to Williamsburg and spreading into the streets of Fort Greene, people from all over the city came together for what they said was a welcome sense of community.
Many said they were taken aback by the history that was made -- that the vice president will be the first woman of color.
Earlier, Senate Minority leader Charles Schumer made sure the president-elect heard the borough loud and clear when he called Biden on the phone to let him hear Brookly residents cheering for his historic win.
Mayor Bill de Blasio also stopped for a moment to reflect with New Yorkers in the street.
The hopes in New York City reflected those of the entire nation after a long nail-biting week.
