The Millrose Games at the Armory

I’ve photographed many events at the vast Armory on W. 168th Street over the years, from a Halloween party to an Independence Day celebration by the Mexican Consulate.

Strangely enough, I had never photographed a track event there.

On Saturday, February 11 I shot the beginning of the 105th Millrose Games. It was the first time the event had been held at the Armory after 86 years at Madison Square Garden. Judging from the reaction of the crowd – and how close you are to the thundering action – this will be a good fit for some time.

    Sounds, and looks like a good time. You must be using a fast shutter speed haha. how’s the lighting in there?

    The lighting wasn’t terrible – I’m sure the evening races were much darker. This photo was shot at 1/1000, f2.8, ISO 3200. You gotta love what the D700 can do indoors.
