Digging through some archives
This is the last round of the NYC Boardwalk series for enRoute Magazine that I’ll be putting on my blog; check here and here for the previous two posts and the entire edit here.
PS Big thanks to Bobby Doherty for helping me out at Coney Island
Please see OCCUPY SANDY: ROCKAWAYS for info on how to help and where to donate. You can also check out the main OCCUPY SANDY site for info on helping other ravaged parts of NY and NJ.
Please REBLOG. Merely “liking” this post won’t help!
Full sun disc down 23rd St. Predicted time: 8:17 pm… actual time: ~8:09 pm. Not sure why the predicted time was so late.
Sun just above the horizon at an azimuth of about 299 degrees (29 degrees north of due west—270 degrees—as the Manhattan street grid runs approximately 29 degrees north of true west-east).
Surprisingly, this is my first Manhattanhenge after living here for 6 years and being obsessed with it and other solar alignment nerdiness. Hopefully the next ones on 7/11 and 7/12 will be a bit less hazy, though the neon pink disc is pretty rad.
