Manhattanhenge – sometimes referred to as the Manhattan Solstice – is a semiannual occurrence in which the setting sun aligns with the east–west streets of the main street grid in the borough of Manhattan in New York City. The term is derived from Stonehenge, at which the sun aligns with the stones on the solstices.

I was fortunate to capture these shots yesterday, right after the rain,at the corner of 72nd Street and Columbus Avenue in the Upper West Side of Manhattan.
