On the Run in Brooklyn, With Photos and Words

[Photo courtesy of Runs Brooklyn]

Gary Jarvis has lived in Brooklyn for a little more than a month, but he's managed to make a splash by setting a goal of running every street in the borough, while writing about and photographing the neighborhoods he runs. Since late June, he's done parts of East Flatbush, Canarsie, Borough Park, Sunset Park, Midwood, Gravesend, Bay Ridge, Dyker Heights, Kensington, Gowanus, Park Slope, Brownsville, Bensonhurst, Crown Heights, Prospect Lefferts Gardens, Greenwood Heights, Prospect Park and other nabes. His Runs Brooklyn blog (described as "One guy, two legs and 1,742 miles of pavement") is becoming a photographic guide to sights in workaday Brooklyn nabes that a lot of people never visit. Today's steamy entry covers East Flatbush, Canarsie and Flatlands. What we want to know is: How does Gary run and take pictures at the same time?
