Manhattanhenge 2016 in Times Square, New York City


This year’s second Manhattanhenge took place last night, July 11th, and I was actually in town not traveling for a wedding like the first time it happened this year! I happened to also have a quick meeting with a bride in New York City yesterday for her upcoming destination Indian wedding, so it worked out perfectly to hang around NYC for a few extra hours to catch the sunset!

Manhattanhenge 2016 Times Square NYC

With the sunset only lasting a few minutes, I didn’t have enough time to walk to a second location in the city like 34th street, which also seemed like it would produce a pretty cool photo based on some quick location scouting earlier in the day due to it being a large two-way street. I settled for an iconic location like Times Square and was not disappointed to share 20 minutes of New York City bliss with the 500 or so other New Yorkers snapchatting, instagramming, and facebooking Manhattanhenge 2016.

Beijing Day 3: Summer Palace & Winter Palace
Here is our long awaited (or not) follow up blog post to what else we were up to in Beijing during our May 2010 trip to China. Day 1 was the Temple of Heaven, Day 2 we headed out to Badaling to see the Ming Tombs and the Great Wall of China. Next up on our list of historic sites was the Summer Palace and the Winter Palace (Yuan Ming Yuan) on Day 3 of our time in Beijing. The Summer Palace was pretty packed when we were there, with many other Chinese tourists and school children seeing this historic site. Much like the Temple of Heaven, the Summer Palace historic site also includes a huge national park area with many smaller buildings and t ...
Beijing Day 4: Tiananmen Square & Forbidden City
Day 4 – our final day in Beijing – meant seeing what EVERYONE has to see when they visit: Tian An Men Square and the Forbidden City. Did we save the best for last? I’ll leave that up to you as you review these photos and the ones in our previous Beijing travel photography posts: Day 1 & 2 – Temple of Heaven & Great Wall or Day 3 – Summer Palace & Winter Palace. Tian An Men Square, the People’s Square, is just that: full of people!! Now I though we saw a lot of domestic Chinese tourists at the other historic sites we visited, that was nothing compared to Tinanmen Square and the Mao Zedong mausoleum. We saw the typical histori ...
