My favorite days of the year.

Three times a year, the sun sets directly in the middle of the cross streets of Manhattan, from 14th St. north - today, tomorrow and July 11th. Assuming the sky is clear, the light is spectacular, with the sun casting a golden orange glow over the bricks and pavement.

From my roof, I grabbed these. Vertigo kept me from getting closer to the edge of the roof.

I hope to be able to stand in the middle of the street tomorrow night without getting crushed by a crosstown bus to get the full, head-on view.
