New York City Feelings

I would give the greatest sunset in the world for one sight of New York's skyline

Manhattanhenge or Manhattan Solstice happens twice a year when the sun aligns east-west streets. During Manhattanhenge the observers on one of the griddest east-west streets will see the sun setting over New Jersey directly opposite.

The best view takes place on 42nd St, you'll see the sun lined up with the center line of 42nd Street.

When? From May, 29th to July, 13th.

Sky Pods Show Rise of New York Skyline

The elevators to the observatory atop 1 World Trade Center show an animated time lapse that recreates the development of New York City’s skyline, from the 1500s to today.

From the moment the doors close until they reopen 47 seconds later on the 102nd floor, a seemingly three-dimensional time-lapse panorama will unfold on three walls of the elevator cabs, as if one were witnessing 515 years of history unfolding at the tip of Manhattan Island.
