This event only happens twice a year during the summer solstice. The setting sun aligns with the east-west streets of the main street grid of Manhattan, New York City – creating one amazing sunset!

  • I am an early riser and am a sucker for a beautiful sunset. I should create a bucketlist:)

  • I’ve always wanted to see the Manhattanhedge!! 🙂 I’ve been in New York around the same time before but was too busy to make it out! Will def have to prioritize it on one of my trips.

  • If I could choose one, it would be Tanzania. But if someone offers to take me to any of the others, wouldn’t say no 🙂

  • Wow. I’ve never seen one of these but I think this suddenly became my top ten travel destinations. I’m in love with the art of sunsets but never thought to seek out special ones. Just another item for the bucket list!

    Lucky enough to have seen Santorini, and lived in Manhattan, so I’ve seen that one plenty. Gorgeous photos!
