New York is a beautiful city. This is news to absolutely no one.

The architecture, incredible views, and famous landmarks make NYC one of the most visually stunning places in the world. You can't help but feel inspired when admiring its glorious sights and beautiful tucked away corners. 

The City is stunning in every single season, changing and aligning itself to its surroundings almost seamlessly.

But the best time of year to catch a glimpse of Manhattan is, without a doubt, Manhattanhenge. 

Manhattanhenge is a beautifully rare event that occurs when the sunset aligns perfectly with Manhattan's east-west grid, creating a breathtaking spectacle that is not to be missed.

The phenomenon was named by Neil Degrasse Tyson, and is gracing the city four times this year. 

See the dates below, and be sure to catch this incredible sight while you can.
