DETAILS

Happening only twice a year, Manhattanhenge is when the setting sun aligns perfectly with the Manhattan street grid - creating a striking image of the city lit up by rays of amber glow in all directions. This Sunday at 8:13pm the full-sun will set precisely in line with the city streets creating an unforgettable sight. Some of the larger cross streets such as 14th, 23rd, 34th, 42nd, and 57th ensure the best views of the west-northwest horizon.
