Donald Trump is spending the day after winning the presidency holed up in Trump Tower, where sleep-deprived aides appear jubilant as they come and go.

The usually buzzing lobby of Trump's residence and campaign headquarters is currently closed to the general public, though an impersonator of the famous "Naked Cowboy" — wearing a robe — was at one point spotted strolling through.

The scene outside is chaotic, with protesters and a mass of press gathered in a penned-off area. Curious onlookers are clogging foot traffic as they pause to take in the scene.

The east side of Manhattan's busy Fifth Avenue between 56th and 57th Streets also is closed to the public, with dump trucks filled with dirt forming a protective barrier outside the building's lobby.
