NEW YORK (MYFOXNY) -

Senator Charles Schumer (D-NY) announced the winners of his statewide lottery for admission to the President's Inauguration in Washington, D.C. in January.

225 people from New York State won tickets and each winner will receive a pair of tickets to 57th swearing in ceremony on January 21.

"I am thrilled for these New Yorkers, who will soon be headed to Washington D.C. to witness a piece of America's history," Schumer said. "The winners of this lottery have the unique opportunity to attend President Barack Obama's swearing-in ceremony and I am positive they will remember this moment for years and years to come. Although I wish all of America could attend the Inauguration, there is only so much space, and I ask you to join me in congratulating these lucky New Yorkers for winning their tickets." 

92 of the winners were from New York City or Long Island. Overall, the metro-area winners break down as follows: 8 winners in the Bronx, 23 in Brooklyn, 18 in Manhattan, 14 in Queens, and 9 in Staten Island. Long Island has 20 winners, 12 in Suffolk County and 8 in Nassau County.
