CARROLL GARDENS — It's going to be selfie central for amped up Hillary Clinton supporters Tuesday night at a Brooklyn intersection they hoped will be the crossroads of history — the corner of Clinton and President streets.

The unassuming Carroll Gardens junction, surrounded by brownstones and a vacant storefront (the Clinton Apothecary) quickly became a social media star Tuesday afternoon as kids wearing "I'm with her" stickers climbed the lamppost so their proud parents could post photos on Facebook.

On one corner, the street sign was adorned with a bouquet of white roses, a nod to the suffragette movement that gave women the right to vote.

Tuesday night, locals planned to use the intersection for a hastily organized election night party if Clinton succeeded in her quest to be the country's first woman president.

Some Clinton supporters at the corner Tuesday said they were on pins and needles waiting for the election's outcome, and visiting the spot was a way to distract themselves from exit poll news.

Park Slope dad Steven Kreps took his children Sadie, Reuben and Avi to the corner during a post-voting pizza tour of Brooklyn that he said was more about calming his nerves than sampling slices.

"I'm just completely ignoring the news, trying to keep it together and not worry about things we can't control," Kreps said.

"We're all just trying to chill out, keep calm and pizza on."

Another Clinton voter, Amy Breedlove, said she was feeling very excited and not as nervous as she was in the weeks leading to Election Day.

"Today seemed like a state of calm," said Breedlove, who took a photo of the street signs with her wife Sabine Rothman and son Russell Rothman Breedlove.

"We have the Champagne chilling and the cyanide pills were put away," she joked.

But not everyone was thrilled to see the attention to the neighborhood street signs.

"All for a sign? Really?" asked a dad who walked by with a shrug.
