Halloween and NYC Marathon This Week In Long Island City
Trick or treat? That’s the question being asked about the new Hunters Point Library as the New York Post writes a scathing article about all the problems discovered in the building since its opening a month ago.
Moving on, Christmas may come but once a year yet Halloween in LIC has multiple dates including the actual one on October 31, and the parade this past weekend, parties, etc., the candy eating and costume changes never cease.1
Not ceasing is the way marathoners must feel after 15-20 miles, but we get them still fresh here in Long Island City. The midway point (13.1 miles) is the Pulaski Bridge which runners exit onto 48th Avenue before making a right on to Vernon B. Check it out this Sunday, November 3, but remember there’s one final treat in store: this weekend we get an extra hour for Daylight Savings! Yeah, definitely the best weekend of the year, because all the playas know the weekend really begins Thursday eve anyway.
2019 NYC Marathon Route – be there by noon the latest, to see the front runners get there earlier
- I guess if you’re Orthodox Christian than you do get 12 days of Xmas, and there are 8 days of Hannukah too, so maybe not a precedent
