NEW YORK — Although Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton originally hails from the Windy City, her relationship with the Big Apple runs deep.
The Chicago native represented New York as a senator for eight years, selected Brooklyn Heights for her presidential campaign headquarters and kicked off her 2016 campaign with an event on Roosevelt Island, among other local highlights.
Her relationship with New York has sometimes been bumpy — her purchase of a Westchester County home a year before her run for Senate in 2000 earned her the accusations of some New Yorkers, including her one-time opponent Rudy Giuliani of being a carpetbagger.
But Clinton went on to win the Senate race with 55.27 percent of the vote, and has marked many more career and personal milestones here, including the birth of her first granddaughter on the Upper East Side and the lifesaving treatment for a blood clot on the brain she received at New York-Presbyterian Columbia Medical Center in Washington Heights.

► Our first stop: Roosevelt Island, 1 FDR Four Freedoms Park
Clinton officially kicked off her second presidential campaign on New York City’s Roosevelt Island on June 13, 2015. She spoke before a crowd of 5,500 supporters, promising to push for universal pre-kindergarten, paid family leave, equal pay for women and college affordability.
► Stop #2: Brooklyn Heights Headquarters, 1 Pierrepont Plaza
Clinton’s campaign signed a lease for two floors at 1 Pierrepont Plaza in Brooklyn Heights to use as her campaign headquarters starting on April 1, 2015. The building, which also houses Morgan Stanley and the Brooklyn U.S. Attorney’s Office, is marketed as “Modern Offices, Brooklyn Cool” on its website. Clinton proved she was just another chill Brooklynite with a promotional video that showed her greeting neighbors of her new Brooklyn Heights headquarters.
► Stop #3: The Clinton Foundation, 1271 Ave of the Americas, Midtown
In 2013, Clinton and daughter Chelsea joined Bill as named members of the Bill, Hillary & Chelsea Clinton Foundation. As a board member, Clinton focused on early childhood development and gender equality initiatives including a $600 million plan to enroll girls in secondary schools across the globe. She resigned from the Clinton Foundation’s board in 2015 when she began her presidential campaign.
► Stop #4: Columbia University, 116th St. & Broadway
Clinton weighed in on the death of Eric Garner, saying he was "choked to death" by police, during her first major policy speech of this presidential campaign at Columbia University. Clinton called for a dramatic shift in the way the nation's criminal justice system treats black men in the April 29, 2015 speech.
► Stop #5: Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture, 515 Malcolm X Blvd, Harlem
Clinton continued her push to woo black voters with a speech on racial inequality in Harlem, hours after meeting with the Rev. Al Sharpton and the heads of several other civil rights organizations in the financial district. Clinton spoke of her plan to spend $20 billion to provide jobs for young African-Americans, to have the Department of Education investigate unfair treatment of black students, set up a program to allow blacks to save for home ownership, and to direct the Department of Justice to investigate police departments accused of racial bias.
► Stop #6: One World Trade Center
After less than a year in office as New York’s junior senator, Clinton joined Sen. Chuck Schumer in pushing for $21 billion in federal funding for the World Trade Center’s redevelopment following the Sept. 11 attacks on New York City’s Twin Towers. As part of the bill, Clinton and Schumer clinched $10.9 billion to boost business and fund infrastructure projects in Lower Manhattan.
► Stop #7: New York Presbyterian Hospital, 635 West 165th St.
Clinton was admitted to New York Presbyterian Hospital Dec. 30, 2012 after doctors discovered a blood clot in a vein in her head. Doctors found the clot during follow-up treatment for a concussion Clinton sustained after fainting and falling during a global tour as secretary of state earlier that month, which kept her from testifying before Congress on the Benghazi attack. She was released three days later and left the hospital alongside husband Bill and daughter Chelsea.
► Stop #8: Wall Street (various locations)
Following her return to the private sector, Clinton gave more than 50 highly-paid speeches to Wall Street executives from companies such as Goldman Sachs, Morgan Stanley and Deutsche Bank. Her 2014 speeches earned her more than $2 million in less than seven months, sparking bitter attacks from opponent Bernie Sanders, who accuses her of being in Wall Street's back pocket.
► Stop #9: New York City Hall, City Hall Park
Clinton attended Mayor Bill de Blasio’s inauguration Jan. 1, 2014 with her husband, Bill, who administered de Blasio’s oath of office using a Bible once owned by President Franklin Delano Roosevelt. Although de Blasio was slow to endorse Clinton for her 2016 campaign, the Clintons have a long history with de Blasio, who served in the Clinton administration as regional director for the Department of Housing and Urban Development for New York and New Jersey and managed Hillary Clinton's 2000 Senate campaign.
► Stop #10: Lenox Hill Hospital, Upper East Side, 100 East 77th St.
Clinton's daughter Chelsea gave birth to Charlotte Clinton Mezvinsky at Lenox Hill Hospital on the Upper East Side on Sept. 26, 2014. Clinton tweeted a photo showing her holding her first granddaughter in the hospital room.
