The New York City Landmarks Preservation Commission (LPC) is celebrating the upcoming New York City Marathon (Sunday, November 6, 2022) with a story map of landmarks along the route. Released last year for the marathon’s 50th running, the NYC Marathon Landmarks story map highlights a selection of 50 landmarks and historic districts along the route in all five boroughs.
“The New York City Marathon is an awe-inspiring event that unites tens of thousands of athletes running for personal causes and personal bests and over a million spectators cheering them on all the way,” said Landmarks Preservation Commission Chair Sarah Carroll. “With this story map, we want to highlight many of the significant landmarks and historic districts along the way that represent the city’s diverse history and architectural highlights and offer incredible views connecting the runners and crowds to the city around them.”
