Yes Virginia, there was a Manhattanhenge -- 5/29/12 -- even under the massive clouds

A picture from this evening’s half sun Manhattanhenge — something that looked like it was gonna be a complete bust due to the massive clouds  —  taken from above.  Between the buildings, Google HQ on the right, and in a direct line with the street below,  you can see  the setting pinkish orange half sun on the other side of the little strip of the Hudson.   The picture is a little blurry because it was taken one handed over a railing so that I could show at least a little piece of the street in line with the sun.  So even though it seemed to be a washout at ground level,  yes, there was a Manhattanhenge after all, at least from my vantage point!
