I live in Brooklyn and commute to Manhattan on the day of the upcoming Marathon. Does anyone know where I can find information on crossing over the route? I need to get from Park Slope across 4th Ave (where the runners are going).
I think I might be able to use the subway station overpass, but I'd like to know before I leave the house that morning. Thanks!
You want to cross 4th Ave more than 15 minutes before the elite runners are supposed to arrive. Otherwise, you will have to use the subway to cross under 4th Ave. I believe the Pacific St stop will allow you to cross under without paying. N.B. you don't want to be between Dean and Pacific on 4th Ave because that's a water station. You probably should check out which stations on 4th Ave let you to cross under without paying a fare.
I have no direct information regarding this station. My research tells me that the 9th St R station should work but that the 4th Ave F station should not. I'd suggest that you make an advance trip to check check out the situation.
