Welcome IOC!

City Hall is so thrilled with the Economist’s upbeat survey of New York City — on newsstands for visiting International Olympic Committee members — that Dan Doctoroff’s spokeswoman sent an excerpt around to the press list, something they never seem to do with any of our articles.

We imagine they particularly liked this piece, headlined “The Mayor’s Political Liabilities Are Assets for the City.”

For some reason, they didn’t send out this new Reuters story about the Olympic Village site. The title: “Toxic Mess.”

Also, we hope the folks over at New York Press aren’t seeking any tax exemptions anytime soon. Their cover story this week, in big black lettering, is “Olympics Go Home.” Welcome IOC!
