"On her 21st birthday, Melissa sat under the U.S.S. Maine National Monument in Columbus Circle, where she and a group of friends spend most nights. Melissa, who is homeless, bought the tiara earlier that day to celebrate her birthday. @nikokoppel, a photo editor for @nytimes, has been documenting New York City at night, after the sun sets and neon ignites. We're sharing some of his photos for #nytweekender. #BreakingNight" By nytimes on Instagram.
