Too bad Columbia couldn't host the summer olympics, it would have been interesting to see the 300 meter sprinters all hopped up on coke and all the kidnappings of star athletes who take the wrong type of cabs.

Could you imagine all the traffic and security hassles if they brought it here, not to mention whos gunna be paying for it? The taxpayers. And with new yorks recent track record on building things on time and on budget, (freedom tower and second ave line) I doubt they would be able to get it done for the olympics.

These things would be built on time if New York were to get the Olympics. There would be guaranteed Federal funding for such an important event with little opposition or prioritization of the money elsewhere. And since funding is the main part of a construction project, getting that money would be a huge milestone in getting things done.

I agree, I'm still glad NYC lost the 2012 bid. The Olympics would've been an even bigger mess than the times the UN is holding their general assembly. And the UN occupies one friggin block! Imagine the entire Olympic events for the entire city? Hell no.

Let it be some other city/country's mess.

If NYC got the 2020 olympics the sporting arena would be done by 2076 after hundreds of NIMBY protests and thousands of board meetings over what the arena would look like and how close to the street it should be.
