  3. A couple years ago I was lucky enough to have my name drawn from the NYC marathon lottery, and it was an incredible experience! Good luck to the runners! You are all winners!

  4. I need to go to Queens, NY from Lakewood, leaving at 11:30 am today. What is the best route to take, assuming I need to bypass Staten Island and the Verrazanno? Thanks!
