This is Manhattanhenge!
  • This is Manhattanhenge!

Lovers of astral symmetry, urbanoplanetary phenomena and dramatically lit concrete canyons are in for treats tonight and tomorrow night when, around 8:25pm, the Manhattan street grid and the setting sun will line up, Indiana Jones-style, for a light show predicted by townhouse-dwelling druids who inhabited the Upper East Side centuries ago: Manhattanhenge! Tonight’s Manhattanhenge, Gothamist says, will feature the whole sun, while tomorrow’s will lamely only have half a sun. (Photo: Flickr)
