Manhattanhenge is a twice-yearly celestial event in which the setting sun lines up perfectly with the Manhattan street grid. It occurred this past Monday, July 12. Unfortunately, the sky was overcast enough to hide the setting sun, so here I share with you two of my photos from last summer’s occurrence on July 12, 2009. I shot from 23rd Street and Fifth Avenue, just in front of the Flatiron Building. I prefer these photos with lens flare, which heightens the drama of the sun setting between the canyon of buildings.
