Manhattanhenge 2012. May 30th. Lower East Side, New York City.


I have taken formal photos of Manhattanhenge in previous years in midtown with the whole iconic backdrop of the Chrysler Building (they are here ).

However, I stayed in my neighborhood this time around. Kind of loving how fantastic the Manhattanhenge sunset looks on the Lower East Side. :)

Manhattanhenge is a semiannual occurrence in 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 term is derived from Stonehenge, at which the sun aligns with the stones on the solstices. It was coined in 2002 by Neil deGrasse Tyson, an astrophysicist who is the director of the Hayden Planetarium at the American Museum of Natural History.
