The New York City Marathon as seen on Twitter, Vine, and Instagram
The New York City Marathon, through locals’ eyes.
Sunday marked the New York City Marathon—the city’s excuse to burn off calories from all the Halloween candy. Its route touched all five of the city’s boroughs, so there were roughly 8.3 million potential Twitter, Vine, and Instagram users ready to document the race.
In Staten Island, some runners heard a Jewish daily prayer before starting.
