Manhattanhenge, May 2014

Manhattanhenge — sometimes referred to as the Manhattan Solstice — is a circumstance which occurs twice a year, during which the setting sun aligns with the east–west streets of the main street grid in the borough of Manhattan in New York City. The neologism is derived from Stonehenge, where the sun aligns with the stones on the solstices with a similarly dramatic effect.

Last year I totally missed this event, even though I was in NYC!  That's the way life happens; at least I caught it this year.
Go take more photos,


  1. wow! Beautiful, Janice. It looks like you had a great time in NY :D

  2. I read about that for the first time just the other day. Fantastic that you were able to to be there for it. Thanks for the pictures.
