This is a photo I took last night of the “Manhattanhenge” phenomenon, which I had only recently learned of. Manhattanhenge is the term for the time of the year when the position of the setting sun aligns perfectly with the New York City grid, allowing boxed-in New Yorkers to enjoy a spectacle that most other people can enjoy year round.  The official date of the phenomenon is tonight at 8:30pm if you are interested in seeing it. Only in New York!
