Hillary Clinton does not maintain an office at her campaign headquarters at 1 Pierrepont Plaza in Brooklyn, New York, electing instead to work exclusively out of an upscale midtown Manhattan office when she visits the state.

According to Politico, a recent tour of the two floors of office space occupied by the Clinton campaign in Brooklyn revealed that Hillary has no literal place in the headquarters despite the fact that the Democratic presidential candidate has demonstrated her enthusiasm for the less pricey New York neighborhood.

"Greetings from Brooklyn, USA!" Clinton tweeted in May, including a photo of her posing with a New York license plate with the lettering "BKLYNUSA." The campaign has also released video of Clinton introducing herself to Brooklyn residents as their "new neighbor."

However, the Democratic presidential candidate has forgone an office in the Brooklyn neighborhood for one in a Manhattan space near Times Square. The seven offices on the 27th floor of an office building on West 45th Street are paid for by the Clinton campaign, the rent for which amounts to about $25,000 per month.

She has visited the Brooklyn space a single time.

The midtown office also houses 10 to 15 campaign staffers, though the majority of individuals working on Hillary’s presidential campaign -- including chairman John Podesta and manager Robby Mook--hold offices and work regularly out of the Brooklyn office space.

The Clinton campaign, known for its frugality, has spent $18.7 million since its launch in April.
