The most magical time in the city to me is near 5:00 am this time of year. It's just as the light is starting to infiltrate the night, and the street lights are no longer the main source of illumination. The whole city has this difused monochrome feel that is so quiet. The city has not woken up and the traffic is nonexistent. It is a stark contrast to the chaos that in just a hour or so will invade the slumbering city. Set your alarm clock early one morning and go have some quiet fun.
