Manhattanhenge is back! It's when the sun sets in line with the street grid of Manhattan. The instagram worthy event happens four times a year ...  around Memorial Day and in mid-July. Manhattanhenge got it's name because of its similarity to when the sunrise aligns with Stonehenge in England. 

Your next chances to see the special sunset are - Friday, July 12 (Full sun aligns at 8:20PM) & Saturday, July 13 (Half the sun aligns at 8:21PM) The best places to view it are on clear cross streets like 14th, 23rd, 34th, 42nd and 57th streets.

Manhattanhenge happens for sunrises too. Those occur in mid-January and late November / early December.
