The New York City Marathon

The New York City Marathon is upon us!  We at The Local are super psyched to be hosting runners and friends of runners this year.  We’re doing our best to designate quiet dorms for those who are running and look forward to supporting and celebrating with our running champions.

If you’re looking for a place to cheer, join The Local Cheering Section on Sunday.  We’ll have an unofficial headquarters at our bar and cafe where we’ll be selling Marathon Mimosas and Bloody Marys along with our normal coffee and espresso offering and will also set up a cheering stand along the racecourse around 9am.  Look for us on 44th Road near 21st Street.  We’ll be tracking and cheering for our guests and friends and helping to pep up the runners as they finish up their Queens leg and head into Manhattan via the Queensboro Bridge.  If you’d like us to track and cheer for you, send your bib number to

Don’t forget to set your clocks back 1 hour on Saturday night, as it’s daylight savings time!
