9. 57th Street

57th Street is another great spot for chasing the sun as it is wide enough to avoid over-stimulating crowds who may ruin the view in other parts of the city. The lucky shot seen above is noticeably missing the crowds that Manahttanhenge usually attracts as it was taken in July 2020 during Covid lockdowns.

10. 72nd Street

While many of the aforementioned crosstown street locations are well-known, a typically less busy place to see Manhattanhenge would be 72nd Street. If you want to avoid some of the crowds but still get a nice photo, this could be the perfect place for it. The sweet moment above was captured even further north on 79th Street.
