Manhattanhenge – The Sun Really Does Line Up Exactly With The Streets of Manhattan

by Daniel Haim

Wall Street traders might think the universe revolves around them, but for a few moments a year the sun really does line up exactly with the streets of Manhattan.

Shadows are perfectly straight, the grid of buildings are directly lit and the Flat Iron is at its flattest.

This is the view of one of this year’s moments from the Empire State Building, along with those enjoying it.

Truly a Kodak, Blackberry and iPhone moment to enjoy. Thanks to our dear friend Adrian Wilson for photographing these, and passing them along.
