NYC Marathon fever may be grinding to a halt, but we can't resist sharing this amazing aerial shot of the Verrazano-Narrows Bridge, the very first leg of the 26.2-mile race.

RECOMMENDED: All ING New York City Marathon coverage

The image of countless runners studding the Brooklyn–Staten Island connector is quite cool (but we wonder how many of them are still hurting, now that it's been a few days since the race).
