New York Time Interactive Map for NYC Marathon

This Sunday, 40,000+ runners will run, jog, walk, and run again through the five Boroughs of Manhattan. The New York Times has prepared an interactive map of the race route along with location of places to watch the runners. The page that contains the map has two tabs: one for the race course itself and a second with tool tips of the location of places to eat along the course. But wait, no Carnegie Deli? Come on! I know it's a block or two just off Central Park South but, gee, you gotta have it on the map!

"The last three years have fundamentally changed the way people understand their location and geography. Looking at interactive satellite imagery of our globe is now commonplace. The next three years will bring even more innovation, unleashing greater data and details allowing users to understand not only the greater planet around them but their own personal web of friends and locations that sit inside of it. Take the opportunity to explore these technologies, not only to learn more about planet Earth but also what your personal slice of it looks like – maybe soon in real-time."
