Manhattanhenge is Tonight!
House of the Week: 189 Further Lane (NBA Playoff Edition)
For just a couple incredible days a year, the Manhattan sunset transforms the city into a magical place with light flowing directly down east to west streets, unencumbered by our tall buildings.
And it is happening tonight!
Conditions for viewing are expected to be perfect, with clear skies and summer temps. The sun will be setting at 8:27pm so try to find a spot (a little early!) along 14th, 23rd, , 34th, 42nd or 57th Streets and enjoy the ride!

The rental for the week was a cool $100k.
