Manhattanhenge 2014 [Gallery]

Second Solstice

See the short video here

That golden disc of sun shone brightly between skyscrapers in New York City at sunset. The proem to the arrival of Manhattanhenge, or the Manhattan Solstice. During this phenomenon, a setting sun lines up perfectly with east-west cross-streets and the grid pattern most of Manhattan is founded on. It is quite the sight to behold, not just for its ephemeral quality, but also for the behaviors of both hardened New Yawkers & the casual tourists.  This is just a selection of the many photos taken, some with filters and others without modification. Let me know in the comments which you like.
