Manhattanhenge returns for a lecture and block party celebrating the last opportunity to see the Manhattanhenge Effect this year!

Join Museum Senior Scientist Jackie Faherty for a 3D presentation about the science and history behind Manhattanhenge, the phenomenon when the setting Sun perfectly aligns with the cross streets of the grid of Manhattan to create a stunning visual spectacle, using the Museum’s powerful OpenSpace visualization software.

After the program in Museum’s LeFrak Theater, join us for a spectacular Manhattanhenge viewing event outdoors! Experience the mesmerizing alignment of the setting sun with the city's grid as you groove to the vibrant sounds of the Williamsburg Salsa Orchestra. Mark the start of summer with this unforgettable celebration of New York City's iconic phenomenon.
