Missed the first one? You have two nights, starting tonight, to catch the second Manhattanhenge of 2018, on July 12-13th. Make plans to ooh and ahh with your iPhone in the air like a real New Yorker, thanks to sunset rays aligning just so with NYC’s street grid during Manhattanhenge. Here’s where to watch. We didn’t forget about you, LIC! Head over to the new extension of Hunters Point Park South, where some will say you’ll get the best views of this summer phenomenon. Can you say LIC Henge?

And every other night this summer, find us at...

Brooklyn Bridge Park

Insider Tip: From Fulton Ferry Landing (just a short walk from 2 Gold Street), catch the ferry from Wall Street’s Pier 11 to DUMBO’s Pier 1 and grab a spot near the first come, first serve grills. Speaking of which: here’s a link to the ferry schedule and to everything else happening there this summer.

Gantry Park in Long Island City

Insider Tip: Call our Center Boulevard apartments home? Reserve a BBQ grill at Club 45 and take in the view above it all with private grills and an indoor kitchen for preparing sunset snacks and cocktails.

The Highline in Chelsea/Meatpacking

Insider Tip: Book a rooftop table at Catch for a view that comes with cocktails, too.

Battery Park

Insider Tip: Make a night of it at the Brookfield Place gourmet food stalls, wander the manicured South Cove esplanade docks, or enjoy an array of free public programming from yoga to al fresco drawing lessons happening along the picturesque waterfront all summer long.

Now that you have all the info you need...

Get on out there and capture that one-of-a-kind Manhattanhenge selfie!
