The first Manhattanhenge of the year will take place on Sunday at 8:13pm, when a half-sun will create a perfectly aligned sunset with Manhattan’s street grid. A full sun event will take place on Monday at 8:12pm, and the events will repeat on July 11 and 12.
The American Museum of Natural History recommends finding a spot as far east as possible that still has views of New Jersey over the Hudson River, and while the suggested viewing spots are 14th, 23rd, 34th, 42nd and 57th streets, Upper West Siders have always enjoyed looking east from 79th and Columbus Avenue. West 72nd Street is also a popular viewing destination.
