Anyone who's ever hosted a dinner party or special event knows the amount of planning and prep work needed to be a good host. Now imagine doing it for 45,000 people. That's what a team of managers and workers at the Verrazano–Narrows Bridge must do each year to get ready for Marathon Sunday.
"It's like our Super Bowl," said General Manager Daniel DeCrescenzo, who, along with a team of supervisors and managers, begins planning for the event months before the ING NYC Marathon takes place. Always held the first Sunday in November, this year's event is Nov. 7th.
