4. Look for the Fred Lebow Statue in Central Park That Gets Moved Once a Year

In Central Park, there is a life-sized bronze figure of Fred Lebow, who founded the New York City Marathon in 1970. A little known fact is that the 600-pound statue gets moved every year, just for the day of the NYC marathon from its usual home near 90th Street and East Drive to near the Finish Line further south in Central Park. In the statue, Lebow wears his legendary running suit and hat, glancing at his watch. This year, the statue will make its annual “pilgrimage” on November 4th.
