Good news! Say hello to later sunsets…oh how we’ve missed them!

Though winter in NYC is one of the most magical times of the year, the terribly early sunsets make the months of November-February a little tougher for everybody.

From May to early August, we get to enjoy longer and lighter days. Yet, come winter, it can get dark before any of us have even left work. And this year, it seems earlier sunsets crept up on us faster than ever!

Fear not, because we’re sharing the good news that the year’s first 7pm sunset will happen on Monday, March 13th.

Daylight Saving Time will begin on Sunday, March 12, 2023. This will lead to even brighter nights and longer days. Meaning that from March 13th and onward, sunset will not be before 7pm for another six months.

And though sunsets will still be earlier than they are in the summer, at least we can look ahead to more light-filled days through the year.

The sun won’t set before 7pm again until September 2023.

Fun Fact: The longest day of 2023 will occur on June 21 (summer solstice) with a sunset at 8:30pm.
