 n.— «“It’s almost eerie to look at the reflections of sunlight off the north side and south side of the street,” said Neil deGrasse Tyson, director of the Hayden Planetarium at the American Museum of Natural History. It was Tyson who coined the term Manhattan-henge when he wrote about it in a newsletter to amateur stargazers several years ago and then in Natural History magazine in 2002.» —“Manhattan phenom ‘henges’ on sun” by Paul H.B.
