Manhattanhenge (Kate Hinds/WNYC)

You've no doubt heard of Manhattanhenge -- when the sunset lines up with Manhattan's grid twice a year, a la Stonehenge.

But it turns out there's also a Greenpointhenge. And a Park Slopehenge.

The folks at online mapmaking company CartoDB put together a map that shows how almost every day, the sunset lines up with some set of New York Streets. They call it NYCHenge.
