People waited for hours for a chance to shake Clinton’s hand and say hello.
“I told her thank you for being such an incredible woman and being my role model,” said Abby Meeks of Brooklyn, who slept on the sidewalk the night before the event. “She asked me where I was from and how I was liking living in New York. It was amazing.”
Tuesday’s event had all the markings of a campaign stop, complete with a bus and stickers that read “Ready For Hillary,” WCBS 880’s Marla Diamond reported.
