Clinton to set up shop in Brooklyn Heights

Hey there, Hillary.

While she may not yet have an official campaign, Hillary Clinton and her team have a new home in Brooklyn. The likely candidate in the 2016 presidential election has just signed a lease for two floors of office space at 1 Pierrepont Plaza in Brooklyn Heights, according to Politico.

The building, which presents itself as “Modern offices, Brooklyn cool,” will place Clinton in direct connection with 12 subway lines and one dozen bus lines; in addition, the headquarters will be an elevator ride away from Morgan Stanley.

Those who represent Brooklyn are already happy to have the former First Lady come to the borough.

“Brooklyn could not be more prepared and excited to host Hillary Clinton as she begins her journey as the consensus front-runner for the Democratic nomination for president,” said Carlo Scissura, president and CEO of the Brooklyn Chamber of Commerce. “As one of the most diverse and tolerant places on the planet — and with cool points no other city can match — the road to the White House is clearly paved through our borough. Brooklyn is the capital of tomorrow, and there’s no better place for tomorrow’s aspiring president to run a campaign.”

Clinton was in Brooklyn earlier this week when she joined New York’s First Lady Chirlane McCray on Wednesday, April 1 at SCO FirstSteps Child Development Center, 225 Newport Street, to announce the launch of the city’s new early childhood development initiative and the Clinton Foundation’s Too Small To Fail Community Campaign Guide.

According to Federal Election Commission rules, Clinton has only 15 days between conducting campaign activities and filing a campaign committee.
