     If you like outdoor geometry, get out in the streets for sunrise and sunset when the shadows line up with the streets.

      The “Manhattanhenge” effect works Uptown on days different from the rest of the island.

      To see the sun line up with the streets in Hudson Heights (on 181st Street in the photo), where the street grid is aligned differently from most of the borough, get out today: it’s on August 28 in Hudson Heights Henge (Fort George Henge is on the same dates as Manhattan, and Inwood Henge is on Saturday — the grid there is so katy-wompus that the sun aligns when it is due “south.”) In the spring, the date for Hudson Heights is April 18.

     The effect works below 174th and above 174th if you go east of Broadway (for sunrise: sunset views may be blocked by buildings to the west). So if you want to see Manhattanhenge, as it’s dubbed, hope for clear skies around May 29 and June 13.
