I've tried to capture Manhattanhenge a few times over the past few years and was never successful in any attempt. It's always cloudy right when the sun hits the horizon and it's a wash. After many failed attempts, I gave up, unless I just happened to be in Manhattan on the right day.
For those who don't know, Manhattanhenge is when the sunset aligns with the grid of the streets in Manhattan in New York City. Most people watch it from the main streets in Manhattan (14th st, 34th st, 42nd st, etc.) but I think the real view is from taking a step back and watching it from the other side of the East River.
Just like every other year, as sunset approached, the clouds came rolling in. Everyone was worried that it would be a wash again but the ceilings only dropped low enough to cut off the tops of buildings. You were still able to see the sunset and I captured this shot.
I also captured this shot of a helicopter passing by which I thought was pretty cool.
