Run the city. ING New York City Marathon
November 6, 9:40am; starting on the Staten Island side of the Verrazano-Narrows Bridge and finishing at Central Park
45,000 competitors endure a punishing 26.2-mile journey through all five boroughs. Amateurs run alongside professional stars as millions of fans cheer them every step of the way. Marathoners compete not only on two legs but also on prostheses and wheels. Feeling lazy? One person ran 50 marathons in 50 days in 50 states. Best and hardest to get viewing spot is in the park near the finish line at 66 street.
Leonard Ursachi’s Well In Cadman Plaza, Brooklyn
The exhibition Well in bustling downtown Brooklyn at Cadman Plaza Park. Located on the lawn near the eastern entrance at Red Cross Place, the sculpture will be on through April 30, 2012. Ursachi’s sculpture, with its wellhead, lever and bucket, is suggestive of a traditional rural well.
The well is called a shared resource and gathering place. Its iconography is mythic—the source from which life and knowledge spring; a receptacle for our dreams and desires.
