Twice a year, New Yorkers get a chance to experience “Manhattanhenge”, the occurrence where the setting sun aligns perfectly with east-west streets. The term is derived from Stonehenge in the UK, where the sun aligns with the huge circular formation of stones on the solstices. The “Manhattanhenge” name was popularized in 2002 by Neil deGrasse Tyson, an astrophysicist at the American Museum of Natural History.
Twice a year the sunrise & sunset lines up with Manhattan's grid. It is known as Manhattanhenge.

www.HotelDealChecker.com New York City (also referred to as "New York", "NYC", "The Big Apple", or just "The City" by locals), is the most populous city in the USA.
I have always loved the hustle and bustle of New York City and would like to live there some day. I've gone to the top of the Empire State Building a few times and nothing compares to such an experience. Being so high off the ground and seeing the city lights its pure magic.

BUY PRINT OR DOWNLOAD What makes this beautiful sunset light percolating through the New York City grid and illuminating the urban canyons extraordinarily special is that during Manhattanhenge, the setting sun aligns exactly between the bustling streets. Due to seasonal variations in position of the sun, it rises precisely due east and sets due west only twice a year. The Manhattanhenge dates vary every year, as explained by the Hayden Planetarium, who keep track of the event but usually take place sometime in May and July. For every time this happens, one has the opportunity to view it twice – the full sun on the grid followed by the half sun the very next day. The best places to view and/or capture the event is from wide cross streets as far east as possible, for example, 14th, 23rd, 34th. 42nd, 57th, and several streets adjacent to them. My fiancee and I positioned ourselves at a location favored by many – on Tudor City Bridge overlooking the Chrysler Building on 42nd Street. We arrived at 5 PM, but the best spots on the bridge were already taken! Because there are streets obstructing the view on the sides of the bridge, only the central 15 feet or so are usable. Hence, photographers line up in rows of up to 5 to capture the fantastic sunset. Rubbing shoulders and bumping heads with our co-photogs, we were undeterred by the soaking thunderstorm that came 40 minutes prior to sunset. Once the sun came out, all troubles were forgotten. Please visit my site to view my portfolio and purchase prints, and read my blog!

Manhattanhenge (NYC) - twice a year the sunset aligns perfectly with the grid of Manhattan. http://www.dmhospice.org.uk/engage-with-us/lottery/raffles
2x per year something really cool happens: the stars, or rather one particular star, aligns with the grid of streets running through Manhattan island, offering photographers and astrologists alike an opportunity to go out and snap a few very unique and very cool photos. On May 29 and July 12 of this year (it varies a bit each year) the sun sets in perfect align with the Manhattan grid. It’s known as “Manhattanhenge“.
Manhattanhenge, sometimes also referred to as Manhattan Solstice, is biannual natural event, wherein the sun set can be clearly visible from the east-west street of Manhattan’s grid in New York City. This could be said to be an urban version of Stonehenge, wherein the sun Manhattanhengealigns itself with the stones of solstices. This term was initially derived by Neil Tyson in the year 2002. He is a astropsysicist at the American Museum of Natural History, and the director of Hayden Planetarium.
