DeKalb Avenue does not intersect with any numbered streets and the highest numbered "East" street in Brooklyn is East 108th Street, west of Fresh Creek Park in Canarsie. Not your tweet, I know; jus' sayin'.

NYRR Brooklyn Half Marathon (30,000 spots) sold out Wed at noon in about 22 minutes. Makes for a good story.

Do you have a regular publishing schedule, or just whenever? Miss the days when there's no update.
