New York goes strangely quiet

Manhattan's Ninth Avenue, normally packed with people and full of traffic, is absolutely quiet. Broadway's theaters just let out, but restaurants that are normally packed are empty and those bars with TVs (thankfully) have CNN on. As a native New Yorker, I've never seen anything like it. Could all of NYC be watching the results?
