Manhattanhenge

This weekend was Manhattanhenge :

Manhattanhenge (sometimes referred to as Manhattan Solstice) is a biannual occurrence in which the setting sun aligns with the east-west streets of Manhattan’s main street grid.

It results in quite an intriguing view, since you get to watch the Sun set while standing on the east side of the island. I took the above photo from the Eastern end of 14th street, where a small group of us had gathered to witness the event.
