Watch 40,000 Marathon Runners Invade New York City

This year's New York City Marathon was my first (I was watching, not running) and it was a truly incredible spectacle. But my vantage point sucked compared to this aerial video, which shows runners swarming the streets like insects.

This time-lapse video, produced by the MTA, shows the Verrazano-Narrows Bridge, which has served as the starting point for the marathon for over 30 years. [Gawker]
