History in Harlem, Election Night 2008

Not since the Giants won the Super Bowl has New York come together like this. Im almost at a loss for words about how to describe the scene...jubilation, relief, joy, vindication and love. At one point a spontaneous Electric Slide broke out at the intersection of 125th and Adam Clayton Powell Blvd. Even now I can hear the horns honking, the repetitive cheering, a siren here or there. Thankfully I have my trusty Powershot S5 as a faithful witness, to record the scene when my faculties come up short. Here it is in vids and pix...
History on 125th St.

Some of the speakers included Jeremy Piven,

Congressman Rangel

and last but not least, D.L. Hughley!

Here is the exact moment when CNN projected Obama as the winner!

The celebration in the streets.

We did it!

Doug E. Fresh pushin' the Escalade! (I didnt have time to ask about the Waffle place!)

People stream in towards the Office Building.

I pity the fool that don't like Obama!

Bobbito Garcia on his way to join the celebration.

Congratulations to our New President, and God Bless America!
