Manhattanhenge 2008

The ever-lovely Manhattanhenge occurs Thursday and Friday this week, where the sunset lines up exactly with the gridded streets of Manhattan. We took it upon ourselves to be at Water-Taxi Beach in Queens last night, which enabled this nice view.

 

I love that the sun creates striped reflections on the water during this event.
