Re: NYC Marathon

There’s an official TCS NYC Marathon app. I’ve used it before when I went to go watch a few friends run. You can track anyone running the race on the app. It’s pretty accurate +/- a few minutes. The app also has the map of the course.

You can’t get into Central Park unless you have a pass. Best place to catch someone is around mile 18 (1st Ave and about 96th) and around mile 23 (5th Ave and about 96th st). This way if you miss them at mile 18, you’ll have a second chance. Trains will be packed heading uptown so give yourself some extra time.

Thanks everyone for the tips.

Leaning towards taking an Uber/Lyft to the starting line, which brings up another question. Site says you must get dropped off by 6:45 am. Is this just another exaggerated NYRR time? I’m going to assume it is. I’m in the first wave, so if I could plan to get there around 8-830 as advised, that’d be ideal.

Is anyone else in the downtown area running the nyc marathon on Nov. 4? If so, how are you getting to Staten Island?

I have the shuttle option from MetLife and was going to take a lyft/uber there. If anyone would like to join in the lyft/uber, I wouldn't mind covering it.

Or if you have a means to get to Staten Island and wouldn't mind accommodating one more person, I can reimburse for the ride and what not.

Thanks!

I'm extremely frustrated with the way people drive around downtown.

I literally almost got into a head on collision on Erie right in front of Talde. A woman who was coming up 1st made an illegal right onto Erie. She had the nerve to flash her high beams at me several times and when I finally got her to realize she's going the wrong way on a one way street, she lowered her window, laughed and said "sorry I'm not from here".

I gave her an ear full cause I don't care where you're from. Signs are signs.

This cat is always wandering around Hamilton Park. The first time i saw this cat I was able to get the cat to come to me and call the number on the tag. The person who picked up was bothered by my call, yelled "he'll come back home" and hung up.

Now I see this cat almost everyday.

after work should be okay. after dark it's relatively safe but you'll probably feel like you're being followed at times. it really depends on what your definition of unsafe is. i've walked around that area many times at odd hours and nothing has ever happened.

As for NJCU i think it's great for the city that they are expanding and becoming a bigger university. for me personally i have mixed feelings towards the school. i grew up on college st, which is right behind the university dorm building which had a camera directly pointed at my parents former house for security. The area by the school also gets 24 hour security from njcu via security vehicles driving around constantly. when my parents house got burglarized in broad daylight the vehicles driving around refused to talk to the police and the camera that was pointed at our house was supposedly not working and its purpose was more of a scare tactic then anything.

I also grew up close to the area you're looking at..and in all honestly i sometimes miss it.

i remember in the 90's it was really bad and you knew which blocks not to walk on. in the early 2000's things got a lot better. around 2010 my parents house got burglarized along with other people in the neighborhood. that's when my parents decided they had enough and sold the house and moved to the suburbs while i moved to dtjc.

I have a good amount of friends that still live in the area and in their opinion it's a bit betters but still feel unsafe at times.

A friend of mine lived in an apartment on Columbus btwn jersey and barrow (closer to barrow) and he couldn't stand the noise. he said that bands practice in the building on the corner of barrow and Columbus that looks like an abandoned warehouse and you can hear it all throughout the night. he would also complain about the random people yelling outside during the middle of the night.

of course living in the city noise is expected, it just seems this stretch of Columbus is noiser than the "norm"

if you can put up with it, I'd say it's pretty safe.

yeah i could shovel a new spot. that would be the easiest and most ideal. unfortunately i can't pick up the car and move it haha.

as for the car taking up two spots. looking out my window there's a car parked by the hydrant. a good distance from the hydrant not to get a ticket but at least 3/4 of a car ahead of it to move forward if shoveled. you can easily fit two cars in that spot if the car moved forward and still not get a ticket for being too close to the hydrant.

instead of venting here i'll let my shovel do the talking and go outside and shovel that 3/4 of a car space in hopes that car moves forward.

How is it taking two spots? Because there's snow around it? Couldn't you just shovel out a new spot? (A pain, I know, but snow is annoying for most.)

is it just me or do you guys/gals get frustrated when people don't clean up their parking spots?

temperatures are suppose to drop so the snow is going to inevitably freeze, making it much harder to shovel, especially the plowed snow thats been pushed up against your car.

I'm on 7th street where parking is limited. God forbid I have to go somewhere, lose my parking spot, come back to someone in the spot i was parked in that took me an hour to clean, and then have to circle around hoping for a parking spot.

Granted i don't have work till Monday so there's still hope. Am I missing something or are people just that lazy.

I grew up in this area and remember when there were certain blocks you knew not to walk on unless you were looking for trouble. things have gotten a lot better since then but still have to be cautious.

I still have quite a few friends that live in the west side area so I go by there from time to time. It always amazes me when I drive from downtown to the other parts of the city, how much different things are. you can definitely tell where the city money is being spent.

food wise there are a lot of hidden gems in the west side area. there's that small Dominican restaurant on sterling, the numerous Filipino spots along west side, and carmines on Mallory. transportation wise, like others have said before me, it's best to have a car, especially for grocery shopping and miscellaneous errands. to get downtown, the best way it probably the light rail. taking the bus can be a pain.

great another topic that turns into a back and forth between vigi and nyrgravey. I wonder what would be said if there was a dog off leash that had a tattoo...

in my opinion, which probably doesn't matter, is that everyone is different. different styles, different tastes, different opinions. if someone does or has something that doesn't harm anyone else. why does it matter? to each their own.

that Ginfi Mexican restaurant that was on Erie between 7th and 8th. Food was decent but barely had any customers so they had to close.

I agree that the HP area could use something. Grove street is a task just to get food.
