"The First Senate convened on March 4, 1789 in an elegant second-floor chamber of New York City's newly remodeled Federal Hall. . . . On April 21 John Adams took his oath as vice president, thereby assuming his responsibility under the Constitution to serve as the Senate's president. Nine days later, House members again crowded into the Senate chamber to witness George Washington's inauguration."
