The Lincoln Square BID has been notified by the City of New York, the New York Road Runners (NYRR) and the producers of the ING Marathon that this year’s marathon, which is scheduled to take place on Sunday, November 3, will have a major impact on Lincoln Square. This year’s marathon will have increased security measures in place in the days leading up to the event. Several streets, mostly east of Broadway between 59th & 66th Streets, will be closed to vehicular traffic, and there will be no parking and limited public access as the Family Reunion Area will be located on Central Park West between West 60th and West 66th Streets. It is our understanding that access to garages and to residential buildings and commercial establishments on the restricted blocks will be granted with proper identification; however, vehicular traffic will be extremely limited.
