Four times a year, the sun sets exactly in line with Manhattan’s east-west streets. This year I went out to Union Square with a group of Googlers to take photos, and it was awesome. I’d forgotten it was Manhattanhenge, so the only camera I had was a Pixel XL.
At Union Square, the sun starts out hidden behind buildings, and the only way you knew it wasn’t a normal sunset were all the extra people:
Another minute, and the street filled up every time traffic stopped.
The sunset lasted for ten minutes. It overwhelmed my Pixel’s camera until it was about to touch the horizon, and then the disk popped into view.
And then it was done, and we left for quieter streets.
