New York stunned by magical event Manhattanhenge

NEW York is a magical place to visit, but twice a year, the city enjoys a moment so awe-inspiring, it seems from another world!

Welcome to Manhattanhenge!

Tourists and residents alike filled the streets of the famous city to capture the breathtaking moment nature and architecture collided.

In video of the moment, people crane their necks, and phones, to the skies as the setting sun aligns perfectly with the Manhattan street grid to beam a golden light directly into the heart of the city.

The moment occurs twice a year, around the summer and winter solstices, and either at sunset or sunrise depending on the time of the year.
