US elections in New York
Tuesday 5 November 2024 will be somewhat different from other days. It is the day when Americans go to the polls. They will either vote for the Democratic Party or the Republican Party candidate. The evening is all about the outcome of the elections in USA.
Where can I see the results?
On results night, I always head to Times Square. The square is filled with camera crews and presenters, bringing live updates to American households. Occasionally, whole broadcasts are made from Times Square, so you might even end up on live television. Furthermore, the Times Square billboards provide live US election results for each state.
The election results can also be followed in the rest of the city. Many bars will have televisions on. This way, you can really witness the reactions of locals and how they experience the night. For example, go to Stone Street, where there are numerous bars.
The week around the elections
Besides the elections taking place on Tuesday 5 November, there is more to do in New York during that week. For example, on 31 October, it is Halloween in New York. On this day, the Village Halloween Parade takes place, children go door-to-door trick or treating and you can attend one of the Halloween parties. The New York City Marathon follows a few days later, on 3 November. This is one of the city’s biggest sporting events.
