The Manhatanhenge, the Manhattan Solstice, is a annual occurrence during which the setting sun aligns with the east–west streets of the main street grid in Manhattan, New York City. The neologism is derived from Stonehenge, where the sun aligns with the stones on the solstices with a similarly dramatic effect.
It happens near the summer solstice. This year has been seen on June 30 and it will be possible to enjoy it on July 11 and 12 at 8:24 in the afternoon. To not miss any detail, it is recommended to place in the eastern part of the ciy facing the west, without losing sight of New Jersey. The best places to see the Manhattanhenge and get the most impressive pictures are the 14th, 23rd, 34th, 42nd and 57th streets and from the terraces of the Empire State Building and Chrysler Building.
