Meet Nia Franklin, the Newly Crowned Miss America Hailing From Clinton Hill, Brooklyn

Two days after winning, Nia Franklin, who lives in Clinton Hill, says it hasn't quite sunk in yet that she is the new Miss America. Franklin said her two roommates are "super stoked" and both were there in Atlantic City on Sunday night to help her celebrate. She may have grown up in North Carolina, but she says living in Brooklyn gave her an edge in this competition.
