5. Flatiron Building

Flatiron Building

Nearby the Flatiron Building, at the meeting point of 23rd Street and Broadway, there is a clear path right to the sun that makes for a great view. Neil deGrasse-Tyson (the man who coined the term Manhattanhenge) recommends this spot!

6. 14th Street

If you’re viewing from Manahttan, Neil Degrasse Tyson states that the best place to situate yourself is on one of the major east-west crosstown thoroughfares. A crosstown street that may provide ideal sun framing is 14th Street between Lower and Midtown Manhattan. Stick near Union Square for the best views.
