Join us for Manhattanhenge, one of our favorite photo opportunities in NYC all year!

What’s Manhattanhenge?

Manhattanhenge is the name given to the phenomenon of the sun setting in line with the street grid of Manhattan. It doesn’t happen on the summer solstice, because the grid of Manhattan is actually on an angle.

This happens twice a year, both a few weeks before the summer solstice, and afterward. In recent years it has become a huge night for photographers to get together in several β€˜photo spots’ – the largest streets of Manhattan, which provide the most cavernous views at 23rd, 34th, 42nd and 57th Street.

If the weather is ultimately not going to be great for seeing the sun get low in the sky and create streams of light, we’ll rain plan this event to a bar in the area where we can meet you, your friends, new faces and new creatives.


Description

Join us for a post-work golden hour walk through the Flatiron District, ending at West 23rd Street for a view of the west-facing Manhattanhenge phenomenon, as the sun sets at 8:12 PM.

On our walk before sunset, we will see the Flatiron Building, the architecture of the side streets, Madison Square Park, the Met Life Building and local art installations.
