New York City Marathon Cancelled

With the entire East Coast being in dire need for basic survival; medical rescues, drinking water, generators, volunteers, police protection, heavy equipment, barricades, shelters etc.... I can't believe the Mayor attempted to hold the race. A Staten Island resident states they need a generator because its going to be below freezing and her children and elderly parents have been freezing without electricity for days...but the race coordinators had hundreds being held to generate power for the Marathon. How insanely selfish! The amount of law enforcement it takes to guard the route every year are desperately needed elsewhere for safety and to control looting.
I've been reading stories of people being forced out of hotels to make room for the runners. All this while bodies are still being found everywhere.
I understand that Mayor Bloomberg wanted to show how resilient New Yorker's are, but come on! Thank God he finally came to his senses and cancelled it!
