With local landmark St. Michael's Church runners run along 4th Avenue.
Every year they hold the Marathon I try to do a photo album shoot as it passes through Sunset Park from 65th street to the Prospect Expressway and the border with Park Slope. Today the weather was extremely cold in the morning and warmed up as the day went on. I shot over 100 pics. I tried picking the better ones for this post. Hope all you local residents can pick out the landmarks...
The first of many musicians and bands we encountered en route. This guy was at the Irish Haven Bar..
The Mug Cafe, good friends of mine and time to pick up a buttered bagle..
Once upon a time Sunset Park was a large Norwegian and Finnish enclave. There are still some around..
Time to stop in at the Tin Cup Cafe for a quick cup.
The owner of Tin Cup Cafe was kind enough to give me a free cup..
There were few runners left as I got to the Park Slope border at the Prospect Expressway Overpass in the Greenwood Heights section of Sunset Park..
