After receiving backlash on his decision to allow the race to be run, Mayor Michael Bloomberg announced that Sunday's INC New York City marathon will be cancelled.

The streets of Long Island City were packed as runners steamed through the heart of Hunters Point in the 43rd ING New York City Marathon on Sunday, November 6.

The community came out to cheer on the runners and to give them the extra boost they needed to get over the Queensborough Bridge on the balmy autumn day.
