When I worked in the City, I took the train twice a day, once in, once out. On nearly every trip I made it a point to look out at the point where the marathon passed under the tracks, in the Bronx.
I was in the City today. Using my handy iPod, I shot video from the 125th Street station to where we cross the marathon course, in this case looking east, into the Bronx. This is part of life in the suburbs.
