NEW YORK (PIX11) — It’s a sungazer’s dream, the welcomed solar event that New Yorkers have come to know as Manhattanhenge.
Manhattanhenge is when the sunset aligns with Manhattan’s grid. The result is amazing views of sun-kissed streets.
The best streets to view Manhattanhenge in Manhattan are 14th Street, 23rd Street, 34th Street, 42nd Street, and 57th Street, according to the American Museum of Natural History.
The name Manhattanhenge comes from the Stonehenge monument in England, which is designed to line up with the rising sun of summer solstice.
