We have our apartment window open, because we are enjoying the constant yelling and horn-honking in celebration of the Obama victory. We live in a 5-story building on a moderately busy street. Seems like everyone here is very excited and wanting to make sure everyone else knows it lol. I happen to be very pleased with the election results (except that I was hoping for a filibuster-proof senate), but I would personally feel dumb walking the streets and voicing my pleasure like these folks. Makes for an interesting night of sounds though .

Well there are crickets chirping and I hear what sounds like a coyote in the far distance and of course my wind chimes clanging in a gentle breeze. So about as exciting as last night, although I think the breeze was a wee bit stronger.

I am on the 3rd floor of my apartment building. There are neighbors on our shared porch/walkways of all ages, colors and sexual orientations. It's almost 1am but nobody has complained about the noise- they have just come out to celebrate. It is going to be a a new day in America and we cannot be happier.

I've heard a couple of McCain/Palin stickers being pealed off I'm quite sure.

No riots yet! Oh, we weren't the ones threatening to riot. Our neighborhood is pretty civilized.

The cars were honking their horns and people on the streets and from their windows were yelling Obama.

My friends say that they heard gun shots in the neighborhood. Especially in and around projects and black neighborhoods. I tought I heard, but I am not sure.

Yes NYC loves Obama. My congressional district voted 98% Democrat last election.
