But while competitors pound the pavement, motorists may find it difficult to navigate around certain neighborhoods, particularly Park Slope, Midwood, Sheepshead Bay and Coney Island. The race starts near the Brooklyn Museum, goes past the Brooklyn Botanic Garden and around Grand Army Plaza before entering Prospect Park. Then, after a loop around the park, runners head onto Ocean Parkway toward Coney Island for the finish line at the boardwalk, according to the race’s website. Here is a list of road closures to help you avoid a traffic nightmare. These streets will be closed from 7 a.m. until noon, according to the Department of Transportation.
