Manhattanhenge seen at 14th Street + 5th Avenue, NYC
Thank you to my faithful reader Eric for tipping me off about this special sunset in Manhattan this evening. I was pleased to see crowds of people gathering on street corners as sundown approached, waiting for the right moment when the sun perfectly aligned with the Manhattan street grid. So comical to see viewers run into the street at red lights to snap a photo (I was one of those people)! Unfortunately the latter part of the descent was spoiled by cloud cover, but there were still several minutes of glory.
Check this out for more on Manhattanhenge — and thanks again, Eric!
Best,
