Talk about a dramatic exit! Tonight the sun and skyscrapers perfectly aligned for this summer's first Manhattanhenge. Each year this astrological event occurs when the sunset is framed perfectly center by the city's buildings. When the steel and brick of New York's most beautiful buildings is washed in a glow of oranges and pinks it's pretty friggin' majestic. But don't take our word for it, take a look for yourself with these pictures.
And don't worry, if you missed tonight's display (which, unfortunately, was somewhat more cloudy than past years) you'll have a second chance on July 13th. For the best view make sure to head as far east as you can on any of Manhattan's major cross streets (14th, 23rd, 34th, 42nd, 57th) and look west, toward New Jersey.
