NYU students converged on the Kimmel Center Tuesday night to celebrate both the end of the election and the dawning of a new era. Hundreds gathered inside the Rosenthal Pavilion to watch the frantic finish of one of the most contentious presidential races in modern American history.

The event, which only ran until 11 o’clock, ended hours before¬†Secretary Clinton conceded the race. But the festivities were joyful, and most in attendance appeared happy the election had finally come to an end.
