Get DateTime now for a specific time zone

Example 1
  //Get time now in specified time zone
  $dt = new DateTime("now", new DateTimeZone('Europe/London'));   //E.g. 'UTC', 'Europe/London', full list at: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_tz_database_time_zones

  $TimeNow = $dt->format('Y-m-d H:i:s');
Example 2

	try
	{
		$TimeZone = new DateTimeZone('America/New_York');
		$LocalDateTime = new DateTime(gmdate("Y-m-d\TH:i:s"));					//gmdate gives UTC/GMT datetime
		$LocalDateTime->setTimezone($TimeZone);
		echo $LocalDateTime->format('Y-m-d\TH:i:s');

	}
	catch (Exception $e)
	{
		//Will occur if DateTimeZone string is not valid
	}
