Manhattanhenge

From Wikipedia: "Manhattanhenge (also sometimes inaccurately referred to as Manhattan Solstice) is a biannual occurrence in which the setting sun aligns with the east-west streets of Manhattan's main street grid. The term is derived from Stonehenge, at which the sun aligns with the stones on the solstices. It was coined by Neil deGrasse Tyson, an astrophysicist at the American Museum of Natural History, in several of his writings in 2002."
