I'm obsessed with Manhattanhenge, the two nights a year when the sunset aligns with the prevailing east-west streets of the New York City grid, a phenomenon that Neil deGrasse Tyson named in 1992.
Any city with a grid has a couple of "henge" nights every year (San Francisco, mark your calendars for July 11!), but New York is where the phenomenon is biggest. The Twitter feed for #Manhattanhenge is an endless, scrolling wonder.
