Twice a year, the sun rises precisely between the towers of the El Dorado as seen from my living room window. The El Dorado is located at 300 Central Park West, between 90th and 91st streets. I took the photo from the top floor of my building, which is located on the same block, at Columbus Avenue. The sun rose today, November 28, 2023, at 7:07 a.m., and will continue its southward track until December 21st, which marks the shortest day of the year, known as the winter solstice. It will then reverse and reappear between the towers in a few weeks, as it has since time immemorial (even before the construction of the El Dorado).
