Upscale in Every Way Imaginable
There are luxury hotels in most major cities, and New York is no exception. This is a great option if money isn’t a problem and you also are looking for incredible room service, especially prior to race day. This hotel is just 1.2 miles to the Whitehall Terminal to grab the ferry across to Staten Island for the marathon start. It’s 5-star rated and upscale in every way imaginable. Spa with indoor heated lap pool and 24-hour fitness center.
Legacy & Super Ambassador
A native of Queens, I currently reside in Minneapolis. I ran the Twin Cities Marathon twice, as well as New York and Dublin. Over the years, I completed many half-marathons, as well as 10K races.
While now a member of the “senior circuit” with my distance running days behind me, I have countless memories of my daily runs in Chicago, continuing in Oakland with beautiful Lake Merritt across the street from my apartment, and on the countless trails around the lakes and in the woods of Minnesota.
My biggest fan, my daughter Sarah, died of cancer in 2013 at the age of 24. My primary charity focus is the annual scholarship fund set up in her memory at Eastview High School in Apple Valley, MN. Scholarship details are available at www.evcg.org.
