Here's What Manhattanhenge Madness Was Like at 42nd Street in Times Square

Manhattanhenge is the term coined by astrophysicist Neil DeGrass Tyson describing the unique local event in which the sun sets twice a year perfectly aligned with the Manhattan grid. This phenomenon allows for some pretty incredible photos in which the setting sun is framed by the surrounding skyscrapers, and as such, brings out the Instagrammers and photographers in droves. In this video from local YouTuber ActionKid, catch a glimpse of the madness as it was Saturday on 42nd Street in Times Square.

I exit a (2) train at the Times Square-42nd Street subway station and make my way to observe the Manhattanhenge Sunset on 42nd Street.
