New York: The City That Never Sleeps

Last week The Wall Street Journal sent a bunch of their in-house photographers out in the depth of the night to shoot the New York city when most of its citizens were asleep. But even at those unearthly hours, certain parts of the city was buzzing with activity – hawkers arranging newspapers to be delivered early in the morning, policemen patrolling the streets, late night owls enjoying a drink at a bar and an occasional street peddler or two. This gallery showcases those people who are awake when most of the city is not.
