It’s the NYC marathon day! I am decidedly NOT running 26 miles today but find myself at least THINKING about / wanting to write about the marathon, which is kind of like running it, but well, Not. Interestingly, the marathon starts in South Williamsburg, cutting right through a Hasidic community on their day of Work. It’s one of those examples of the many cultures / lifestyles in NYC which usually sort of never have to deal with each other, confronting each other directly. IE lots and lots of empty paper cups from near-naked marathoners; suits.
