One of the best New York City events takes place this weekend: the NYC Marathon. With an expected 50,000 runners participating in the race on Sunday, and thousands more cheering on the sidelines, you can definitely expect some transit and traffic disruptions. The marathon kicks of 8:30 a.m. in Staten Island and ends in Central Park. In addition to typical subway delays and reroutes (or just a total lack of service), the MTA is also closing the Verrazzano-Narrows Bridge on Nov. 4 between 7 a.m. and 3 p.m. If you need help getting to the event on Sunday, check out the Marathon Subway Map from the MTA.
