Citizens in New York and across the country have voiced their opposition to Sunday’s New York City Marathon going forward. Mayor Bloomberg has insisted that the race will proceed, but Fox Business’ Charles Gasparino is reporting that Wall Street execs believe the marathon will be canceled.

Fox’s @cgasparino, citing traders and bank sponsors: “What they’re telling me is that the NYC marathon, they believe, is cancelled.”
