Trump, Clinton plan dueling New York election night parties

(AP) - Presidential nominees Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump couldn't be further apart politically, but they'll spend the decisive night of their polarizing campaign barely a New York minute away from one another.



Both major-party candidates are holding election night parties in midtown Manhattan.



Republican nominee Trump is headed to a power hotel that boasts of having hosted every president for more than half a century. Democratic nominee Clinton will be at a sprawling convention center with a perhaps symbolic glass ceiling.



In between is Times Square, where election-watching crowds have gathered for decades.



It stands to be an only-in-New York election night befitting the spectacle of this year's campaign. It's also the first presidential race since 1944 to feature two major-party candidates from New York state.
