New York: when the city sleeps.

The Wall Street Journal sent several photographers out overnight to shoot New York City during the hours when most of its citizens are sleeping.

One thought on “New York: when the city sleeps.

  1. The winters in Florida are great , but the sun gets old when
    it’s constantly hot and humid. These two counties are actually lucky compared to others in Florida.
    From Ft Meyers to Naples, restaurants have been eager for business.
