This is why I love New York. 


I suppose the most arresting thing about Manhattanhenge isn’t the near-perfect alignment of the setting Sun with the east-west grid of the borough’s streets.

It’s seeing the way people – New Yorkers and visitors alike — unilaterally decide to spill out onto those streets, en masse, without apparent regard for their own safety, to see for themselves and document this most extraordinary of skybound events.
