You know when the Museum of Natural History has Manhattanhenge on their website that this is a straight up, legit science-y happening folks.
When the setting Sun aligns precisely with the Manhattan street grid, creating a radiant glow of light across Manhattan’s brick and steel canyons, simultaneously illuminating both the north and south sides of every cross street of the borough’s grid. A rare and beautiful sight.
Um in other words, go stand on 14th, 23rd, 34th, 42nd or 57th street for the best views
and remember to look west, as in the sun sets in the west. 8pm sharp.
See you upstate!
