    Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump was met with boos as he went into his midtown Manhattan polling location to cast his ballot on Tuesday.

    Video from the scene shows dozens of bystanders jeering and shouting "Go home!" at the billionaire businessman, his wife Melania and his daughter Ivanka as they walked into P.S. 59 at about 11 a.m. 

    Across the street, many cheered, including a group of construction workers on a job. 

    Video from inside the East 56th Street school was much quieter, showing Trump talking with children and voters before filling out his ballot. He even gave one boy some cash before heading to check in with elections officials.

    The scene was a far cry from Chappaqua, where Hillary and Bill Clinton voted. There, spectators crowded around and took photos as the former secretary of state and president both headed to cast their votes.

    It wasn't the only notable Election Day scene at P.S. 59, either. Earlier that morning, two topless women barged into the polling room and started shouting "Out of our polls, Trump!"

    Both women were later charged with electioneering.
