NEW YORK — Dramatic photos show two of New York's Finest tackling a distraught and barefoot woman who threatened to leap from the 20th-floor balcony of a Midtown building yesterday morning.

It was touch-and-go for the Emergency Service cops, who spent more than an hour comforting and calming the woman, who was threatening to leap from the ledge of 112 W. 38th Street during rush hour.
