The fireworks were to be seen from the Jacob Davits Center in New York City, where the Clinton campaign is holding its election night party.

However, the fireworks have now been called off, the Coast Guard has told TMZ. The Clinton campaign contacted the Coast Guard two days after revealing the plans to cancel the fireworks display.

The Coast Guard has not revealed the reason behind the cancellation. TMZ says they have reached out to the Clinton campaign for comment, but have not yet received a response.

In 2012, Mitt Romney planned a $25,000 fireworks display over Boston Harbor to celebrate his victory, however the event was cancelled after he lost the election to Barack Obama, according to the Daily Caller.
