72nd Street from Central Park West, New York

Twice a year, on May 29 and 30 and on July 11 and 12 at sunset, the sun is aligned with the street grid of Manhattan like in an ancient religion temple. The first day of each couple of days you can watch a full sun while in the second day only a half sun. The crowds are packing the best viewing spots competing to take pictures. If a future civilization were to uncover the Manhattan grid trying to make sense of the life cycle and harvesting in this huge metropolis they would hardly guess that all its inhabitants spent their entire life in cubicles and the only harvesting was being done at the supermarkets.
