Mayor Bloomberg Cancels New York City Marathon due to Sandy

New York City Marathon

Mayor Michael Bloomberg officially canceled the New York City Marathon due to the continued cleanup efforts after Hurricane Sandy roared ashore earlier this week, flooding 42 miles of NYC subways and knocking out power to millions of homes on the East Coast. The storm is also responsible for more than 100 deaths in the U.S.

Originally, the mayor decided that the race would go on as scheduled on Sunday, but critics felt it was in poor taste to keep the marathon on despite the devastation.

What do you think of Bloomberg’s decision?
