As sure as the setting sun, throngs of tripod-toting tourists and New Yorkers alike piled into the cross-streets for the stunning solar-street grid alignment, Manhattanhenge, on Sunday night, and 42nd St near Grand Central Terminal proved one of the city's best viewing spots. But that doesn't mean cab drivers cared.
