People step out into the street to photograph the sunset along 34th Street, aligning with the Manhattan street grid during "Manhattanhenge" on July 13 in New York. It is dubbed "Manhattanhenge" and happens two times a year when the Sun aligns at dusk with streets in a glowing magic trick as rays of sunlight span across New York perfectly, from west to east.

The sun sets on the horizon across 42nd street as "Manhattanhenge" occurs in New York on July 13. "Manhattanhenge may just be a unique urban phenomenon in the world," says astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson, of the American Museum of Natural History, who officially discovered the phenomenon. The name "Manhattanhenge" is a play on Manhattan, this city's most famous borough, and Stonehenge, the megalithic monument in southern England.
