Thousands of supporters have crowded the streets of New York tonight for Bernie Sanders’ rally. The star-studded opening lineup promises to be one of the Vermont’s U.S. Senator biggest rallies of his campaign to date. New York City-based Gothamist captured photos of the crowd eagerly waiting outside, well before doors were scheduled to open. Check out the amazing photos below.
Vampire Weekend, Spike Lee, Rosario Dawson, Linda Sarsour, Shailene Woodley, Tim Robbins, and Graham Nash will be opening for Bernie at Washington Square Park. Local news trucks reportedly started setting up before 12 p.m. ET. The Secret Service started letting people into the park at 5 p.m., but people hsd started lining up in the early afternoon.
The crowd may potentially be even larger than the 24,000-person rally then-senator Barack Obama held at the park in 2007.
