Twice a year, New Yorkers get a chance to experience “Manhattanhenge”, the occurrence where the setting sun aligns perfectly with east-west streets.

 

The term is derived from Stonehenge in the UK, where the sun aligns with the huge circular formation of stones on the solstices. The “Manhattanhenge” name was popularized in 2002 by Neil deGrasse Tyson, an astrophysicist at the American Museum of Natural History.

 

If you missed it don’t worry, a second date this year is expected to take place on Monday, July 11 through Wednesday, July 13 at around 8:25 p.m.

The only day where Manhattanhenge 2012 was visible - and yes its a day after the peak but still quite nice. Peak days for the May showing were May 29th and 30th. The next opportunity is July 11th and July 12th.

 

I met a lot of fellow Flickr folks as well as other photographers over the course of the last 4 days, which made the lack of visibility enjoyable nonetheless.

 

This was shot from the Tudor City bridge over 42nd Street looking west towards New Jersey.

Manhattanhenge 2009 viewed from Tudor City bridge over 42nd Street.

 

I went with Pat Marella (pmarella) and we ended having to clear the bridge for what was thought to be President Obama's motorcade however he and the first lady went a different route. I sorta squirmed my way back to were we were waiting prior for 2 hours however Pat ended up not even seeing the sunset.

Every year in early November the sun sets in line with the Hoddle Grid. It is not quite as spectacular as Manhattanhenge but still makes for some good photo opportunities. This week I'm showing 6 shots taken during this time, 4 fresh this year and 2 from the archives, 2007 and 2009.

 

Twice a year, the sunset in Manhattan aligns perfectly with the East/West avenues. This July, about 100 photographers crowded a tiny overpass to capture the event. This picture was taken from Tudor City Place, looking west down 42nd Street past the Chrysler Building on the right, Grand Central Station further down, and Times Square waaaay at the end.

 

Stopped down a bit to get the starburst look and a bit wider to include the trees.

Manhattanhenge - This was my first time seeing this with my own eyes. A pretty amazing sight to behold. Three bracket shots without a tripod just before the sun disappeared below the horizon. Several of us jumped out into the middle of 42nd to get a better line of sight. NYPD was gracious in holding traffic so we could capture the moment.

The view from Tudor City bridge over 42nd Street in New York City (NYC) looking West after the July 2010 Manhattanhenge. Found this image while poking through the archives.

 

Last image from the archives from this site I'll probably post until I shoot new Manhattanhenge shots in May of this year (unless I'm not able to since I'm planning on more surgery in May...). Not sure if I like this one but thought I'd post since I do like the Yellow Cab in the lower left.
