The first weekend in November finds New York at its best—full of excitement, hope, and enthusiasm. People of all ages and from many walks of life come together to cheer on the 50,000 runners on the course of the TCS New York City Marathon. Check back in the weeks before race day to find out how you can support runners at the 2016 TCS New York City Marathon. Catch all the action, and your favorite runners, by standing and cheering along the course. Here are some super locations where you can get a great view and enjoy the local scene: Fourth Avenue, Brooklyn (Miles 2-4): You'll see runners--pros, those you know, and the masses--as they exit the Verrazano-Narrows Bridge and move along Fourth Avenue. This is an exciting spot to dance, cheer, and encourage runners from cheer zones. Williamsburg and Greenpoint, Brooklyn (Miles 10-13): Claim some sidewalk space along streets lined with shops and restaurants, in this very popular section of Brooklyn. Enjoy local treats as you watch runners and encourage them to keep their pace as they head toward the bridge to cross into the next borough: Queens. Pulaski Bridge (Mile 13.1): The Pulaski Bridge connects Brooklyn to Long Island City, Queens. The bridge is closed to spectators, but many fans wait on the Queens side, just past the race’s halfway mark, where runners appreciate some loud encouragement. First Avenue, Manhattan (Miles 16-18): First Avenue is known for being packed with spectators who line the sidewalks and shout encouragement at deafening levels. The avenue’s many bars and restaurants contribute to the festive atmosphere. Fans can run in and out of establishments—their own marathon of sorts—without missing a beat. East Harlem (Miles 18-20): Also known as Spanish Harlem, this neighborhood is home to a bustling Latino community and provides fantastic music on race day. Runners fear hitting the dreaded “wall” here and in the coming hilly miles, so this is a perfect location to cheer your heart out to help keep the motivation high. Museum Mile, Fifth Avenue (Miles 23-24): Along the east side of Central Park, this stretch of Fifth Avenue includes the Guggenheim, the Jewish Museum, the National Academy Museum, El Museo del Barrio, and the Museum of the City of New York. It’s a cultural hub as well as a crucial spot to catch your runners before they enter Central Park.
