When does it get dark in NY

Another quickie- fancy going up ESB and see the city "come alive" in lights but wondered what time it gets dark in NY?

Depends on when you are coming. Right now sunset is 8:30 and it gets dark about 9.

Mid-September sunset is a little after 7 PM and it gets dark about 7:30. I would try to plan it so that you are at the top right before sunset because the City has a particularly wonderful glow at sunset and is magical after it gets dark.

The weather in mid-September can also be the most glorious N.Y.C gets: temps can hover in the low 70's and the humidity can disappear.

The city has a certain type of energy also. It's like a "second wind". In another month the leaves will start to change but the last touch of summer is on everything.

It can really be spectacular.

Manhattan never of course gets really dark (nor does it sleep).

It never rains in southern California, and it never gets dark in New York City.

it gets dark when the sun goes down... and then the 10000000000 lights come on.... so then I guess it never really gets dark?
