Take the journey with me on November 6, 2016

Staten Island
The Verrazano-Narrows Bridge

The longest suspension bridge in the United States at 4,260 feet, the Verrazano-Narrows Bridge has served as the start line for the New York City Marathon since the race adopted its five-borough format in 1976.  As the race begins, runners eagerly charge up to the apex of the bridge and are rewarded with breathtaking views of the New York Harbor and the city's famous skyline in the distance.

Brooklyn 
Brooklyn Academy of Music

After exiting the bridge just before Mile 2, runners descend upon energetic Brooklyn, where they'll run along loudly cheering crowds for the next 12 miles. At Mile 8, runners pass the historic Brooklyn Academy of Music-one of the most popular spots for spectators, where things are guaranteed to get a little loud!  Creative signs,  local bands and costumed spectators combine for a festive buzz all along the course.

Queens and Manhattan 
Queensboro Bridge onto First Avenue

At the halfway mark, runners enter Queens—one of the course's quieter stretches. The silence reaches a diminuendos just past the 15-mile mark as runners cross the Queensboro Bridge to a melody of rhythmic breathing and the sounds of each other's footsteps. But that silence dissipates at the end of the bridge when runners curl down the ramp and enter Manhattan for the first time.  Suddenly, runners are engulfed with a high-decibel cheering from throngs of rowdy fans lining First Avenue, providing a much-needed jolt for the next 4 miles on the way to the  Bronx.

The Bronx
Willis Avenue Bridge

Following their first taste of Manhattan, runners cross the Willis Avenue Bridge just before the 20-mile mark and take a short tour of the Bronx, the unofficial home of the mythical marathon "wall" that everyone hopes to avoid.  It’s sparsely populated with fans, so it's the place where runners really need to dig deep.  A little more than a mile later, they reenter Manhattan via the Madison Avenue Bridge and head for Central Park.

Manhattan
Columbus Circle

The final 5K of the race relentlessly undulates and weaves through the east side of Central Park amid a sea of fans.  For a short stretch between mile 25 and 26, runners exit the south end of the park onto 59th Street before reentering at Columbus Circle, one of the most densely packed parts of the course.  From there, it's just over a quarter of a mile to the finish line!
