She stepped out into the hazy night.

Is this correct and natural?

She stepped out into the hazy night. She new John, for all his faults, wasn't indifferent about him. But the silent city was cold and indifferent.

Re: She stepped out into the hazy night.

Don't you mean "indifferent about her"? You definitely mean "knew".
Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

Yes. I've been teaching all day. I'm a bit tired. So, is this correct?

She stepped out into the hazy night. She knew John, for all his faults, wasn't indifferent about her. But the silent city was cold and indifferent.

Re: She stepped out into the hazy night.

The grammar is fine. What are you trying to say? Does she want the city to care about her?

I would say she knew John cared about her. Is there a reason for saying that in such a roundabout way (as in a original sentence)?
