Illuminating both the north and south sides of every cross street simultaneously, set in perfect alignment with the East West numbered streets, this is a sight to behold and a PERFECT opportunity to take some spectacular photographs! You’ll see that as the sun sets, half the disk will sit above and half below the horizon in a perfectly symmetric pattern.
For best viewing, position yourself as far east in Manhattan as possible. The clearest view will be 14th, 23rd, 34th, 42nd and 57th streets, as well as surrounding streets.
