New York Moves Up

New York is reported to have moved up on a list of cities competing to host the 2012 summer Olympics.

That is at least according to Mayor Michael Bloomberg who said:

"The report will be very complimentary on New York, but the one caveat is a question about the stadium,"

The stadium is the proposed $1.9 billion football stadium on Manhattan's West Side.

The mayor is counting on the stadium for the National Football League's Jets as a centerpiece in New York's bid to win the Olympics, but the project has met strong opposition from some politicians who say it would leave other needs neglected.

A key vote on the stadium could be held as early as next week by a state board.
