Manhattanhenge July 2011, 42nd Street and Tudor City Place Overpass, Midtown New York City - 1
Manhattanhenge July 12th 2011.
42nd Street and Tudor City Place.
This was my second Manhattanhenge at the prime location of 42nd Street and the Tudor City overpass. It's a popular spot for photographers since there is an uninterrupted view of the natural occurrence. The experience was just as intense as last time and absolutely breathtaking to witness through the lens of my camera :).
"Manhattanhenge (sometimes referred to as the Manhattan Solstice) 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 at the American Museum of Natural History." Source
