Manhattanhenge

| Life

Okay New Yorkers, tonight is one of Instagram’s favorite nights (here’s hoping it doesn’t crash like it did this past Tuesday. #fail ). That’s right: Manhattanhenge. Twice a year, the sun sets in perfect alignment with our fair city’s grid. Tonight at 8:16 PM (we know that you can always count on friends to be late, but the sun won’t be, so let’s make this one of those scenarios where timing counts), stand on a street facing West and marvel in the glory that is Mother Nature. And maybe say a silent thanks to the people in charge of city planning.

If you’re really going for the ‘gram gold, stand on a street as far East as possible, but make sure you can still see Jersey. The bigger street, the better, so think 14th, 23rd, 34th, 42nd and 57th. Double the amount of Likes (and maybe get a comment or two) if you get a shot of the Empire State Building or Chrysler Building glistening in the setting sun. #Boom Instagram fame.
