Around noon of Nov. 7, multiple major news outlets announced that former Vice President Joe Biden was projected to be the president-elect. After four days of watching ballot counts trickle in from battleground states, thousands flooded the streets of New York to celebrate. Champagne flowed, car horns blared, and people danced in the streets.
