Once again, Archtober has partnered with the Four Freedoms Park Alliance to host a Manhattanhenge event on Thursday, July 12. Twice a year, the sun sets perfectly in line with the NYC street grid creating this unique visual experience. FDR Four Freedoms Park will stay open late, offering a perfect location from which to observe this fun and beautiful phenomenon. In conjunction, Archtober will host the second annual #ArchtoberSelects Instagram competition, judged by @field_condition! Event attendees can share their photos of the sunset with #ArchtoberSelects by 3pm on Friday, July 13 for a chance at winning prizes from Archtober and NYC Ferry.

Additionally, Atomic Funk Project will flex their freedom of speech and expression muscles to perform a fantastic set of funk and soul classics, Wonder Photo Shop NYC will be onsite with an interactive photo installation, and many more surprises!

So, bring your camera, grab a friend, and capture the NYC skyline as you’ve never seen it before!
