New York City Sees Protest-Free Election Night

The New York Daily News reports:

As Election Day updates slowed to a trickle into Wednesday morning, most New Yorkers appeared to have stayed home rather than take to the streets.

The NYPD had braced for protests Tuesday night over the outcome of a contentious presidential race between President Trump and Democratic candidate Joe Biden, dispatching officers throughout the five boroughs.

Yet by Wednesday morning, there were no signs any large protests had swept the city. Earlier in the day, Chief of Department Terence Monahan told reporters there were no major incidents to report, and that the NYPD didn’t expect any incidents later in the night.
