Diary of a New York City Marathon, Now With a Finishing Kick


Stashed in: New York

"In 2012, I set out to examine the atmosphere, history and landmarks along the New York City Marathon route, one mile per day, in the 26 days leading up to the race.

Just two days before the race, the marathon was  canceledas the city reeled from Hurricane Sandy. 

Here are Miles 1 through 24, left mostly intact, complete with dated references to the Nets’ new home (they’ve played at Barclays Center for over four years now) and TV shows like “Mad Men,” “30 Rock” and “Gossip Girl.”

The final miles 385 yards are newly written: Just look at that obligatory reference to “Hamilton.”"

It's all about the Hamiltons. :)
