FRIDAY ASTRONOMY- Manhattanhenge

Once a year, the Manhattan grid comes into astronomical alignment with the sun, and city dwellers are treated to a sunset that lines up with crosstown streets. We suggest a sidewalk picnic, some discreet open containers and a few fond gazes directed toward New Jersey.

May 30, sunset at 8:16pm; best viewing is at 14th, 23rd, 34th, 42nd and 57th, as far East as possible
