Beyond Brooklyn

Our two locations, Carhenge in Alliance, Nebraska, and Andrews/Murphy/Brasstown in North Carolina, both delivered clear skies and a spectacular show for the Great American Eclipse. It was what we all wished for.

The celebration begins at Carhenge

On August 21, 2017, Carhenge will be in the direct path of the Total Solar Eclipse at 17:49 (UT) or 11:49 am (MT). Carhenge is a curious replication of England’s Stonehenge by experimental artist Jim Reinders who created the sculpture as a tribute to his father.
