A solar eclipse will engulf much of the United States today, but unfortunately for New Yorkers, we won’t experience the full sun-blocking effects of the phenomenon. Instead, we’ll get a partial eclipse, with the moon covering about 70 percent of the sun—so still pretty cool, if not as impressive as full totality.
The eclipse itself will peak around 2:44 p.m. in New York City, which means many people will be at work—but if you’re making special plans to view the whole shebang, we’ve got you covered. Below, find some of the best places to view the eclipse, from watch parties to spots in the city that will look especially cool shrouded in mid-day semi-darkness. (And if you still need eclipse glasses, here are some places to try.)
