If you love Manhattan like I do, then this is for you.
From yesterday’s New York Times:
Q. I’ve heard about a “Manhattan solstice,” when the sun supposedly lines up along the streets. Is it for real? When does it happen?
A. Here’s the lowdown on the sundown, courtesy of Neil deGrasse Tyson, director of the Hayden Planetarium at the American Museum of Natural History. Next Sunday and on July 13, the sun will fully illuminate every Manhattan cross street (not the curved or angled ones) on the street grid during the last 15 minutes of daylight, and it will set on each street’s center line. The sight is breathtaking.
Read on for all the details. It is really cool.
