January 2010 Manhattenhenge sunrise captured by Untapped New York photographer Monica Morrison on 34th Street.
Manhattanhenge did not disappoint, as the edges of buildings grew bright, anticipating the sun to wax into view. But more so of note, was the gathering of humanity.
Twice a year, the sun falls into exact alignment with the Manhattan street grid, offering incredible sunsets that fully illuminate the cross-streets. The most dramatic photographs could arguably be taken amidst the notable architecture on 34th and 42nd street.This phenomenon has been nicknamed “Manhattanhenge” for its similarity to Stonehenge.
