NYC devotees believe every day is magical in their city but twice a year Mother Nature seems to agree by turning it’s grid structure into one huge sundial.
According to Space.com:
The best way to watch Manhattanhenge, Tyson says, is to get as far east as possible on one of the city’s major cross streets, such as 14th, 23rd, 34th, 42nd or 57th streets, and look west toward New Jersey. (The streets immediately adjacent to these wide cross streets will work fine, too, but the view won’t be quite as stunning.) Standing on 34th or 42nd street provides a particularly nice view, as the views include the Empire State Building and the Chrysler Building. It’s a good idea to get to your spot 30 minutes early, so you can beat out the other sun worshippers.
So, grab an iced latte, a camera and a couple of friends and enjoy the free show, New Yorkers.
