Stonehenge Partners is proud to publicly support the July 12th New York City Manhattanhenge occurrence. Beginning at 7:00 p.m. at 235 West 48th Street in Firefighters Memorial Park, Stonehenge will lead festivities centered around the solar event. Following these festivities, Stonehenge will lead a walk through the Times Square Pedestrian Walkway (Broadway from 42nd to 47th streets).

Manhattanhenge is a semi-annual occurrence in which the setting sun aligns with the east–west streets of the Manhattan grid. The term “Manhattanhenge” is derived from the historical and mysterious structure in England where the sun aligns on each of the solstices.

In celebration of this year’s natural phenomenon, Stonehenge is hosting a photo contest for the image that best captures Manhattanhenge which will occur at 8:25 p.m. Stonehenge recommends participants to shoot their photos from 42nd street facing west.

Pedestrians, visitors, and the Times Square community are invited to participate and enter the photo contest where Stonehenge will award the most voted picture with a $500 Apple gift card.

Contestants are invited to send their best photos of Manhattanhenge to contest(at)StonehengeNYC(dot)com by July 15th, 2011. The images will be posted by July 18th and voted for on the Stonehenge facebook page,
