Mayor Michael Bloomberg wishes the Olympics were held in New York City instead of London this year, but, in his words, his administration is not going to “go and cry” about it. In fact, after a press conference earlier today, he said the city has built and done many of the things it would have done for the athletic event anyway.
“I’m sorry that we lost our opportunity, we gave it our best shot, and lots of people gave money and worked very hard to bring the Olympics here,” Mr. Bloomberg said of the city’s unsuccessful bid to get its own Olympic nod. “It would have been wonderful, but we didn’t get it.
