June 2, 2010
Twice a year, there is a phenomenon unique to New York where the sun lines up with the city's east-west street grid, creating some beautiful conditions for photography. It's informally called Manhattanhenge and the first one of 2010 happened at sunset on Monday. I found out about this on a blog called Animal, which has posted Manhattanhenge pictures for the last couple years, like the one above. The next opportunity for anyone looking for a unique picture of the city will occur on July 11th at 8:42pm. Mark your calendar, bring your druid necklace and I'll see you on 42nd street with my Lumix.
