Clip: 07/13/2019 | 1m 47s Video has closed captioning.

In New York City, a modern-day version of Stonehenge is a delight for residents and visitors alike. It happens only four days a year, when the sunset aligns with Manhattan’s street grid, turning high rises into canyon walls with a sunset perfectly in the center. It’s called “Manhattanhenge,” and lasts just a few minutes, when thousands try to capture the perfect photo. Hari Sreenivasan has more.
