THE STORY: Cold and clear, a few pedestrians, and a glorious sunrise peaking through the Brooklyn Bridge.
There's something special about New York City just before sunrise.
It's a pause in the busiest place on the globe, a quiet catch-your-breath moment, a last twinkle of the lights in the skyscrapers, a minute to feel isolated in a city of 8.5 million people.
