WATCH | New York City experienced a late winter blizzard on Tuesday.
At 5 a.m., the storm first hit the city. Here, in Union Square, an ambulance provides mobile shelter and care center for the homeless.
In Times Square, a crowd of tourists braves the storm at sunrise to catch a glimpse of "Good Morning America" being filmed live.
The pond in Central Park is shown as the storm hit its peak. Light snow turned into sleet and hale, hiding the surrounding skyscrapers in the whiteout.
At Grand Central Station -- an intersection normally packed with daily traffic and pedestrians -- the streets are eerily empty.
