@flickr noticed that photos of Manhattanhenge are starting to flow in from last weekend. What’s Manhattanhenge?

a biannual occurrence in which the setting sun aligns with the east-west streets of Manhattan’s main street grid. The term is derived from Stonehenge, at which the sun aligns with the stones on the solstices. ~Wikipedia
