From Dark to Dawn

Leah Reisman

It’s three in the morning and pitch-black outside. The streets are empty and silent. The storefronts on the avenue are all shuttered, their lights dimmed. Everyone is sleeping. Everyone?

Who are these people who stay up all night, and where do they work?

 

A Midnight Adventure
