絕美曼哈頓懸日

出版時間:2019/07/21

Four times a year, a beautiful natural phenomenon can be seen on the busy streets of New York City. A few weeks before and after the summer solstice, the sunset lines up perfectly with the city’s uniform street grid. In addition, shortly before and after the winter solstice, it is the sunrise’s turn to align with the streets. In both cases, the result is a breathtaking sight: the sun rising or setting over the horizon, perfectly aligned with the east-west streets. If you happen to be in New York at the right time, don’t miss the fantastic Manhattan Solstice.

一種絕美的自然現象一年可在紐約市繁忙的街上看到四次。在夏至前後幾週,落日餘暉整齊地灑滿該市的棋盤式街道。此外,就在冬至前後,日出也會與街道成一直線。兩者最終都呈現出一幅壯觀的景象:地平線上的日出或日落都與曼哈頓的所有的東西向街道完美對齊。如果你正好在恰當的時機到紐約,別錯過絕美的曼哈頓懸日。
