Manhattanhenge

The setting sun sinks in perfect alignment with New York's 42nd Street July 11, 2005. Since Manhattan's east-west streets don't run precisely east-west, they align with the setting sun only twice a year, an event known locally as "Manhattanhenge". REUTERS/Jeff Zelevansky

'Manhattanhenge' in NYC

Twice a year, the setting sun aligns itself with the east-west grid of

streets in Manhattan, allowing the sun to shine down all streets at the

same time.
