New York City

When and Where to Catch a Glimpse of Manhattanhenge

You'll want to have your camera handy for this one.

Manhattanenge will be making its final appearance of 2017 Wednesday and Thursday and New Yorkers will likely be flooding the streets to catch a glimpse of the stunning sunset.

If you’re wondering what exactly Manhattanenge is, it is a solar phenomenon that happens twice a year when the sun aligns perfectly with the New York City grid.

Manhattanenge will definitely be an Instagram-worthy moment, so make sure you have space in your Camera Roll. 

Here is where and when you can see it, depending on the weather of course.
