Roosevelt Island FDR Four Freedoms Park Open Tonight To View Manhattanhenge Spectacular Light Show - Registration Required For FDR Parkhenge

According to the Roosevelt Island FDR 4 Freedoms Park:

On July 12, Four Freedoms Park Conservancy will open the gates of FDR Four Freedoms Park after-hours so that visitors can take advantage of “Manhattanhenge.” Twice a year, the sun sets perfectly in line with the New York City street grid, creating this spectacular light show.
