It is indeed! Check in the PREVIEW and LOcation threads for more info!
Oops... I didn't read the Location thread before I posted this. :cmaslol Anyway, can I assume this is a Roadblock? Because I only see Lexi doing it. :cmas5

The jumping in the Brooklyn Navy Yard is a RB.  See the red clue in Trey's hand:


Oh, I see... :cmaslol Anyway, is there any possibility that we're going to see another Double Roadblock? Although we have seen it back in Leg 1... :cmas5

I think that we will see two Roadblocks.

If they also have Robert Indians LOVE sign and Belvedere Castle as the Finishline i would be so happy!!!!

Recent finales have seem to have two RBs and a dual partner task. So far we have the bungy RB, the flag/salutation RB and the dual partner pizza task.

Agree with you with the recent finales, DrRox; but the problem this season is that we already had 11 RB performed along the race.  Here's the list, leg by leg:

1.  Tennis table and Fallopian Tubes.
2.  Balloons.
3.  Serve lunch at restaurant.
4.  Repair bus.
5.  Build a scale.
6.  Sell in the Grand Bazaar.
7.  Unlock the locks.
8.  Time zone puzzle.
9.  Switchback
10.  Tennis at Manacor.

The thing is we already have two more legs upcoming, and only 1 RB to perform.  Unless they change the rules and teams have to face 14 RBs instead of 12, what would allow a 7-7 count in the last leg with a double RB.

It looks like the final memory challenge has the "Hello" and "Goodbye" we expected.  They have to raise banners with the correct "Hello" and "Goodbye" to match the country's flag flying at the top.

There is a US flag that may already have the banners in place as an example.

There is also a Mexican flag in the shot so that means that there are phony route countries in place to foil the Racers. 
 

The location appears to match this Google Streetview:  Link





Everyone knows this location as the United Nations Building in New York City.  Note the flags reflecting in the windows at the bottom of the Streetview image.   :lol:

Oops! That proves you were right with the merge.

BTW, caps 32 and 33 are the confirmation that Beekmans are the last F3 team.  :cmas20

 :cmaslol   OK, now that we have a clearer view of the Brooklyn Navy Yard bungee jump, here's an updated view of exactly where it takes place.  (no surprise, it's over the water.... should have known).   :cmas19

A = bungee jump
B = big crane
C = white (temporary) building


Same task form germany season 16

How about cap 17 from the bungee jump task? That is clearly not trey because trey is wearing a bandana in his hair and his straight jacket has a yellow line around the neck whereas cap 17 (possible Beekman) has a green line.

I clearly remember frank and margarita losing in their hometown New York in the first season. Maybe the Beakman boys can lift that curse.

Many people, including Racers, may not live in NYC now, but have lived or visited there often enough to know their way around. The real question is how well their taxi drivers know their way around.

Josh still works on Wall Street. He has for about 15 years. The pizza task is right next to Wall Street in Little Italy. I would not consider him a "racer that used to live in NYC" or a "visitor to NYC."

As I said, it will be interesting to find out IF the Beekmans have/get any hometown advantage. The leg seems pretty linear to me. JFK to Coney Island to Brooklyn Navy Yard to Lower Manhatten to East Side near the UN. It would be nice if the finish line is that same place that TAR 1 started from.
