We’re teaming up with Four Freedoms Park and Archtober for their special summer kickoff event on Thursday July 12th during Manhattanhenge! The best place to capture this rare and unusual event when the sun will set perfectly in line with the NYC street grid is FDR Four Freedoms State Park where they are hosting a FREE summer celebration in its honor!

Atomic Funk Project will perform soul and funk hits, and visitors can expect a variety of pop-up activities, from an interactive photo booth by Wonder Photo Shop NYC, to a photo contest hosted by Archtober and NYC Ferry, and a reverse happy hour in collaboration with East Midtown Partnership. So, bring your camera, grab a friend, and capture the NYC skyline as you’ve never seen it before!

Share your photos with the hashtag #ArchtoberSelects to win Archtober and NYC Ferry prizes and swag!  Submissions will be accepted until until 3pm on Friday, July 13.
