New York City is no longer in the running for the 2024 Summer Olympics. Mayor Bill de Blasio believes it is not worth it to have the Games of the XXXIII Olympiad in the biggest market in the United States.

Cities have until 2015 to submit their bids. The International Olympic Committee is expected to announce its decision in 2017 at the 129th IOC Session.
