The proposed Olympic Village in southwest Queens, opposite Manhattan and Brooklyn.
New York, NY –
On Tuesday, the U.S. Olympic Committee officially nominates New York City to host the 2012 Olympics. Two years from now, the International Olympic Committee will make its final choice. Local organizers and the Bloomberg administration say even if New York doesn't win the summer games, a little 'Olympic pressure' will help get some ambitious projects started. WNYC's Fred Mogul looks at one of them.
