Here are some shots of “Manhattanhenge” (when the setting sun aligns with the east / west streets on the NYC grid) that I took on 14th Street on July 12, 2011:

Fiery Sunset from Union Square NYC into New Jersey

Posted by LG On June - 3 - 2011

Here are some of my images from what’s known as “Manhattanhenge” when the setting sun aligns with the east / west streets on the NYC grid.  This year’s first Manhattanhenge was on 5/30/11 when the setting half sun could be seen from the middle of NYC cross streets and the second, with the full sun seen setting, was on 5/31.  I caught it from 14th and 5th Avenue.  (Another occurs in July 11-12).

It was amazing to watch!
