Hillary Clinton to hold election night party under real glass ceiling
The Democratic presidential nominee’s staff announced Wednesday that the event will be held at the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center in Manhattan.
Most of the Javits Center is built with glass, from top to bottom.
Since the renovation was completed last year, the #JavitsCenter has truly become a thing of #beauty. The main entry hall is fittingly called the #CrystalPalace since 2,400 #skylight panels were installed, allowing natural light to fill the interior and bring the outside in. #fxfowle #Manhattan #NYC #conventioncenters
Many people took to social media to make references about the symbolism of the venue.
“The place where Hillary will figuratively shatter the glass ceiling will literally have a glass ceiling. Hope no one confuses the two,” posted one user.
But there is one little twist in the choice of building.
Repubilcan opponent Donald Trump says he wanted to be part of the development of the Javits Center. But the city and state decided to oversee the project, according to his book “The Art of the Deal.”
He writes in length about how he disapproves of the choices of the architect and that his offer of help was refused.
“What happened at that convention center is that the city and state took a great piece of property and a great project and ruined it through terrible planning and ridiculous cost overruns,” his book reads.
Time will tell whether his female foe will break through the glass ceiling.
