So most people know that Hurricane Sandy destroyed ALOT of homes and properties in Staten island and in queens. The NYC Marathon starts off on the Verrazano Bridge (for those who dont know its a bridge that connects brooklyn to Staten island) and you have to run through all 5 boroughs.



ALOT of people want the Mayor to postponed the event because it is an inconvience because of the relief efforts



but on the other hand.. it will also bring money into the city since alot of the Runners are donating money and other stuff to the red cross to help out



what do you think? Postpone or go through with it?

I don't have a problem with them not postponing the marathon. However, I might think differently if I lived in the area.

They can continue a marathon but can turn away help from power companies that are trying to help the NY people? Interesting.
