What Comes After the Letter C

#6: Knowing your alphabet is never more crucial than when you're doing the second half of the Brooklyn Half.

For example, what comes after Avenue C when running along Ocean Parkway? (You want it to be Avenue D, don't you). ?

That's not the case, however: It's Cortelyou Road. And then Ditmas. And then it's kind of a mess for a short time.

Thankfully, after you hit Avenue H, it's a fairly regular countdown to the end (Quentin Road takes place of Avenue Q). Do note, however, that once you hit Avenue Z, you've still got a bit more to do before you hit Coney Island, so don't get disappointed.
