But What of the New York City Marathon?

It's supposed to be this Sunday


As officials evaluated widespread storm damage, organizers for the New York City Marathon began work Tuesday to determine how Sunday's race might be affected by flooding and power outages.

"N.Y.R.R. continues to move ahead with its planning and preparation," Mary Wittenberg, the chief executive of New York Road Runners, the group that organizes the marathon, said in a statement. "We will keep all options open with regard to making any accommodations and adjustments necessary to race day and race weekend events."
