An exhibition at the Austrian Cultural Forum New York exploring the cultural contributions of Austrian architects that emigrated to the United States.

The sunrise alignment occurs around December 5 and around January 8. Excellent places for viewing Manhattanhenge are 14th, 23rd, 34th, 42nd, and 57th Streets.]
