Some of you will recall that I gave a televised tour of a few sights for On the Run at the Brooklyn Half in May.
(skip to 6:38 to see my part)
Well, apparently my segment was popular enough to warrant a reprise for the ING New York City Marathon, which takes place Sunday, November 3!
Brooklyn is home to over 11 miles of the course – the most of the five boroughs. The route comes off the Verrazano-Narrows Bridge,
then spends an interminable distance (five miles) on Fourth Avenue,
followed by a quick left on Flatbush and a quick right on Lafayette, before beginning the Bedford Avenue section,
and zigzagging through Greenpoint until crossing into Queens via the Pulaski Bridge.
So I ask you: what would you like to see? Let me know in the comments and I’ll try to work some of them in!
I’m definitely going to Ba Xuyên this time, by the way.
*The others are Fort Hamilton, Bay Ridge, Park Slope, Gowanus, Boerum Hill, Fort Greene, Williamsburg, South Side, Northside, and Greenpoint.
