New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg says New
York City Marathon has been canceled.

His statement Friday came after mounting criticism that this was
not the time for a race.

With people in storm-ravaged areas still shivering without
electricity and the death toll in New York City at more than 40,
many New Yorkers recoiled at the prospect of police officers being
assigned to protect a marathon on Sunday.
