Crowds lined up Sunday at a Huntington bookstore to meet former President Bill Clinton.
Clinton autographed copies of his new book "Giving: How Each of Us Can Change the World" at Book Revue on Main Street. The cold and snow did little to stop throngs of fans from wrapping around the store outside.
"How often can you meet a president, right?" said Susan Margolies, of Cold Spring Harbor. "We look forward to meeting the 'first man' in the White House," said Rob Margolies.
Andrea and Anthony Favale commandeered a couple of chairs from a local coffee shop and set up camp.
Clinton also made quite an impression on Book Revue co-owner Robert Klein. "I'm really proud," Klein said. "I think he was a really good president and it's great for the town. It's great for the store and we're honored to have him."
The feeling was mutual for Clinton, who said he feels like he has roots in Huntington because he's had friends here since his college days. "It's really a beautiful town," Clinton said. "I just love it and I've had a great time today."
