    in 2 weeks, the first post-Sandy one (with a camera oh DHS bots)?

    I've been spending time in Central Park lately after a 10+ year hiatus when I lived on the west coast, mostly doing laps around the park on my bike but occasionally stopping to relax and enjoy the views. So, thanks for the photos.

      I can't think of a way to make those photos interesting unless I rent one of those sky cranes or somehow get one of those coveted seats at the top edge of the grandstands.

      If anything I'd like to get pictures of the starting line but that's in Staten Island and I never applied for a visa.

        in Bay Ridge is probably interesting. I've run it a couple of times and it's quite an experience. Most marathon photos are in Central Park, on 1st Ave or crossing the QBB, so a less photographed location might be an interesting alternative, perhaps Marcus Garvey Park or the short section through Queens.

        Speaking of which, the huge Sunnyside yards is probably a good subject for a diary, although, again, DHS might look askance at it.
