Manhattanhenge 2012: A Full Sun Aligns With New York City Grid On July 11th

Wednesday evening was the last time that New Yorkers will see a full-sun Manhattanhenge this year, and the weather was perfect. Unlike the year’s first Manhattanhenge back in May, clear skies made for spectacularly clear views of one of the world’s greatest urban phenomena, when the sun aligns itself with Manhattan’s 201-year-old street grid. New York City’s photographers took to the streets, often blocking traffic to get the best shot. And if you missed last night’s show, don’t worry. There’s a half-sun Manhattanhenge Thursday evening, and there’s always next year!
