NEW YORK (PIX11) — Thursday’s 6 p.m. sunset will be the last in the tri-state area for the year.

We are at the time of year when each day has less sunlight. The sunsets during the 5 p.m. hour will not last long either. On Nov. 5, the clocks will turn back one hour for daylight saving time.

The next sunset after 6 p.m. in the New York City area will be in March 2024.
