Manhattanhenge

About: Twice a year, the sun sets at a point visible straight through Manhattan's street grid. This is the view from Tudor City Place, an overpass over 42nd St.

Wikipedia has a nice article about the event.

 

Technical details: As displayed here, this is a 100% crop from my Lumix DMC-G2. RAW conversion in Lightroom 3.

 

Mentions: This shot can be seen in Gothamist, The Atlantic Wire, The International Business Times, PetaPixel, ArchDaily, AMNH
