    Brooklynites filled the streets and stoops along the route to cheer on more than 52,000 runners as they pounded the pavement for the 49th New York City Marathon. The route included 12 miles stretching from Bay Ridge to Greenpoint, and onlookers were prepared with blaring music, handmade signs and screams of encouragement.

    Photographers pro and amateur were busy documenting the day, with shots both inspirational and amusing. After looking through scores of images, here our Instagram picks from along the Brooklyn route.
