Crowds Gather in New York to Witness 'Manhattanhenge'

Crowds of people gathered on the streets of Manhattan to catch a glimpse of the “Manhattanhenge” sunset on the evening of July 11.

Video by Twitter user Ben Von Klemperer shows the view from West 42nd Street as the setting sun aligned with Manhattan’s street grid.

New Yorkers are treated to the phenomenon for four days each May and July. Monday’s conditions were expected to be the best this July, after two clear days around Memorial Day weekend made for good viewing. Credit: Ben Von Klemperer via Storyful
