Manhattanhenge - NYC The two best days (known as “full sun on the grid”) take place on Monday, May 30, 2016 at 8:12pm, and Monday, July 11, 2016 at 8:20pm.

Manhattanhenge (sometimes referred to as the Manhattan Solstice) is a semiannual occurrence in which the setting sun aligns with the east–west streets of the main street grid in the borough of Manhattan in New York City.
