Workshop: Manhattanhenge - Sunset on 23rd Street

2012-06-20

The beauty of the setting sun is something many of us in New York City do not see regularly. We are blocked by some of the tallest buildings in the world, and we are wrapped up in our busy lives. Take a moment to join us at the Lomography Gallery Store Gramercy in NYC to breathe, and watch as the sun sets down 23rd street. This special sunset only happens twice a year, and is breathtakingly beautiful as the sun cascades and reflects off of the buildings on our street.

What: Manhattanhenge – Sunset on 23rd Street
Technique: Sunset Photography

Enjoy an evening outside the everyday hustle and bustle of New York City as we look east down 23rd street and watch as the sun sets perfectly aligned with the grid of the city streets. This special day only happens twice a year, so come grab a camera and join us as we capture the quite beauty of the moment and savor the peacefulness of the setting sun. This workshop is FREE.
