Only New Yorker to Win NYC Marathon Dies at 74
The first and only New Yorker to win the city's marathon has died.
Multiple reports say Doctor Norbert Sander died at his home in Westchester County.
The Fordham University graduate won the race back in 1974.
In 1993, Sander took over the Armory in Washington Heights and renovated it into one of the city's premier indoor track and field venues.
The Armory hosts over 100 track and field events, and invites thousands of athletes each year.
According the venue's website, Sander also practiced family medicine at his office on City Island in the Bronx.
He was 74 years old.
