Trump and Clinton choose New York for election night parties

US presidential nominees Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump could not be further apart politically, but they will spend the decisive night of their polarising campaign barely a New York minute away from one another.
Both candidates are holding election night parties in midtown Manhattan.
Republican nominee Mr Trump will head to a power hotel that boasts of having hosted every president for more than half a century.
Democratic nominee Mrs Clinton will be at a sprawling convention centre with a perhaps symbolic glass ceiling.
In between is Times Square, where election-watching crowds have gathered for decades.
It looks set to be an only-in-New York election night befitting the spectacle of this year's campaign.
It is also the first presidential race since 1944 to feature two major party candidates from New York state.
