The view from 42nd street in Manhattan.

The wait was worth it and New York was once again the scene of a spectacular “Manhattanhenge”, the phenomenon that happens only twice a year in the famous city of perfect blocks and skyscrapers.

That moment when the sunset lines up between the buildings casting a warm glow over the concrete jungle often attracts to thousands of tourists and New Yorkers looking to capture the perfect image.

The first night of Manhattanhenge took place on Monday, with only half of the sunset in sight.

But on Tuesday, the sun showed fully between the skyscrapers at sunset.
