The Other New York

"After the tour buses disgorge their tourists into the sleek hotels of midtown Manhattan, and after the day-dwellers lock themselves in against an accumulated fear of the night, the city slowly slouches into its own skin, revealing a vulnerability and an occasional mean streak to those who brave its darker side. This is the 'other' New York, the city as bleary-eyed insomniac that replaces the manicured tourism of daylight."
