  • When a Presidential candidate and president came to Chelsea

    I was walking past the Chelsea Studio about 3pm today when I saw a bunch of news reporters there. I've never seen them there before for Tyra Banks or Martha

    Steward so I asked then whats up. Turn out Mike Huckabee was in Chelsea to be on the Tyra Banks show. I couldn't find out when it will air. The show airs at 5pm in NY.





    Some years ago we had a winning presidential candidate in Chelsea. Here's an article from 1861 from when president Lincoln was in Chelsea.




    MR. LINCOLN IN NEW YORK.

    The President-elect reached this city on Tuesday afternoon, after being greeted at every station this side of Albany by enthusiastic crowds to whom he made two or three short addresses. The reception in this city must have been peculiarly gratifying to him. He was escorted to the Astor House by the Common Council in carriages. The line of the route along Ninth Avenue, Twenty-third Street, Fifth Avenue, Fourteenth Street, and Broadway was crowded with spectators, almost equaling the turnout to witness the Japanese and Prince of Wales pageants. - more: http://www.sonofthesouth.net/leefoun...ion-speech.htm
