APTOPIX Manhattanhenge
People stand in the middle of 42nd Street in New York's Manhattan borough as the sun sets through the middle of the buildings during a phenomenon known as Manhattanhenge, Wednesday, July 11, 2012. Manhattanhenge, sometimes referred to as the Manhattan Solstice, happens when the setting sun aligns with the east-to-west streets of the main street grid. The term references Stonehenge, at which the sun aligns with the stones on the solstices in England. (AP Photo/Julio Cortez)
