wasnt New York a host city at some stage?
New York has never hosted the Olympic Games. It has only bidded for the Olympics once, for 2012, which it lost to London.

i remember seeing on BBC after NY lost the 2012 bid their mayor saying "at least we are still the greatest city in the world, never to have hosted an Olympic Games". i feel it is strange that New York City was overlooked for Los Angeles for the 1932 Olympics, at least.

I went to some of the city events for the Sydney 2000 olympics, but only this year I visited to olympic park to see a Santana concert, I never realised how 'Grand' the Sydney olympic park was.
