Our reporter Theo Usherwood was close to Trump Tower, where fans of the Republican tycoon have been gathering since it became clear he was going to beat Hillary Clinton.
The video shows what happened when a Clinton fan - who appears to be a man of Middle Eastern origin - shouts at a Trump fan in a red cap: "This is the real America! America is racist!"
"Why don't you leave!" the Trump fan shouts back at him. "You hate America? Get the f*** out!"
From there, it gets even more heated and even more explicit.
It's not the only heated confrontation on the streets of the Big Apple last night, where both Trump and Clinton fans had gathered for election parties.
In this video, Theo encountered a Trump fan loudly berating a young man who said the result shows that America is "dead".
Anti-Trump demonstrators in Los Angeles burnt a Pinata, a reference to the candidates derogatory comments about Mexicans, who are the biggest migrant group in the US.
Elsewhere in California protests broke out in Berkeley, with protesters chanting, 'not my president' as they matched through the streets.
