Manhattan Sunset

Blog, New York Cityon January 4th, 2011No Comments

You don’t get a lot of direct sunlight in Midtown Manhattan. The buildings are so tall that most of the street is permanently covered in shadows, and even in my apartment, the only sunlight I get is reflected from the apartment building across the street (and it’s really bright).

It’s interesting to watch the sunset while I’m at work, because I see all of it indirectly. The tops of the buildings change colors, from their usual gray to yellow to reddish orange, as the sun goes down. For a few minutes every day, the sun reflects off buildings at an angle that creates the worst glare on my computer screen. And then, finally, I see this.
