Yet another city has turned its back on the Olympics.
Just a few days after residents of Krakow, Poland, voted not to try for the 2022 Winter Games, the mayor of New York City said he has no interest in a 2024 bid.
"Our feeling is that you could actually deter tourism to some extent by hosting an Olympic Games," Alicia Glen, deputy mayor for housing and economic development, was quoted as saying.
Gov. Andrew Cuomo had previously said that his office was reviewing a potential bid plan.
The USOC is now considering bid proposals for 2024, with Los Angeles, San Francisco, Boston and Dallas among the potential contenders.
