Photo by myself, around 72nd Street and Columbus, on the Upper West Side.
Dozens of runners crossed the street wrapped in blankets after finishing the marathon, Sunday afternoon. The scene looked a little like soldiers returning home from a battle.
Part of 72nd Street was closed to traffic. This was a popular spot for family and friends to meet up with runners after the race.
