Bundle Up! December Sunrise Manhattanhenge Returns!

On Wednesday, December 5, 2018 comes the last Manhattanhenge of this year.  Readers of this blog will remember, and you can find them in the history, the explanation of the science of this phenomenon.  Briefly, the orientation of our cross streets aligns with the rising or setting sun to be framed in the concrete canyons of this island.  On Wednesday the alignment of the rising sun, so look east on those cross street.  And bundle up.  It will be cold but predicted clear.  If you will be in New York, set your alarm (be on the street before 7 AM) and get your pictures!  It is a spectacular view.
