Donald Trump NYC election party at the New York Hilton Midtown: See photos

Before Donald Trump was officially named president-elect of these United States, and gave his acceptance speech, a night-long party for the candidate was held at the New York Hilton Midtown.

A brisk stroll and Trump could have joined opponent Hillary Clinton at her election event at the Javits Center just two miles away.

At the Hilton, politicians (Rudy Giuliani, Sarah Palin) and the public watched the results from mid-evening on Tuesday through the early hours the next day. With just a few states left to be called and 276 electoral votes solidified, Trump was firmly poised to become the 45th president.

Take a peek at the scene at Trump's rally.
