Art Description

“Sign of imminent alignment of the sunset with Manhattan’s grid aka Manhattanhenge 05.27.20”. [Clara Kasser]

Manhattanhenge, also called the Manhattan Solstice, is an event during which the setting sun or the rising sun is aligned with the east–west streets of the main street grid of Manhattan, New York City. The sunsets and sunrises each align twice a year, on dates evenly spaced around the summer solstice and winter solstice. The sunset alignments occur around May 28 and July 13. The sunrise alignments occur around December 5 and January 8. Excellent places for viewing Manhattanhenge are 14th, 23rd, 34th, 42nd, and 57th Streets [wikipedia]
