Manhattanhenge

‘Manhattanhenge’ is a phenomenon that happens around summer solstice when the setting sun aligns with the east–west streets of the main street grid of Manhattan, New York City, resulting in a golden glow.

Astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson popularised the term, which was named after the similar event at Stonehenge. This year, it’ll occur on both 12 and 13 July at 8:20pm (EST)

Good wood - another awesome log cabin, this one was designed by Manhattan studio JacobsChang in upstate New York and built on a shoestring. Love the contrast between the blackened timber exterior and the cool, calming, minimalist white interior.
