Watch Neil deGrasse Tyson Talk All About Manhattanhenge and the Best Places to See It

Manhattanhenge, where the setting sun aligns perfectly with the Manhattan street grid, is happening this Monday and Tuesday. Astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson offers up some viewing tips, courtesy of a recent interview with Thirteen.

For best effect, position yourself as far east in Manhattan as possible. But ensure that when you look west across the avenues you can still see New Jersey. Clear cross streets include 14th, 23rd, 34th. 42nd, 57th, and several streets adjacent to them. The Empire State building and the Chrysler building render 34th street and 42nd streets especially striking vistas.
