Manhattanhenge: The Sun, The City And A Special Rendezvous

Manhattanhenge – sometimes referred to as the Manhattan Solstice – is a semiannual occurrence in which the setting sun aligns with the east–west streets of the main street grid in the borough of Manhattan in New York City - usually around May 28 and July 12 or July 13 – spaced evenly around summer solstice.
