Attention photographers, Manhattanhenge is once again back! Today and tomorrow at sunset mark the the first of two and occurrences of Manhattanhenge for 2016. Today will be the full sun and tomorrow the half sun. That term refers to how much of the sun you can see above the horizon when it is dead center at the end of the street. Good locations in New York City are the large two-way cross streets like 14th and 23rd on the east side of Manhattan looking west.

Most images you see are from the east side of Manhattan looking toward New Jersey to get the sun setting, but there is also an amazing view of the sun’s golden reflections on the buildings from the New Jersey side in locations like Weehawken. Also, a nice feature of shooting from New Jersey is that buildings on both sides of the street should be equally lit.
