> DESCRIPTION

Join us on this special day, one of two each year, when the setting sun aligns precisely with Manhattan's street grid, a phenomenon known as Manhattanhenge. This program also honors the closing days of the Museum's blockbuster exhibition The Greatest Grid: The Master Plan of Manhattan, 1811-2011. Curator Hilary Ballon will reflect on the Master Plan and Matt Knutzen, Geospatial Librarian at the New York Public Library, will explore the question: "Is the grid some sort of time piece?" Fans of The Greatest Grid which closes on July 15, can have a few minutes during a special open mic to express their thoughts about the grid--off-the-cuff or in poetry or prose! An event for all those who appreciate the many wonders of the grid.

Co-sponsored by the New York Public Library and presented in conjunction with the exhibition The Greatest Grid: The Master Plan of Manhattan, 1811-2011.
