NEW YORK (AP) - New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio’s trip to Washington is on again.

De Blasio (dih BLAH’-zee-oh), a Democrat, had announced early in the week that he planned to travel to the capital Friday morning.

The trip was then put on hold on Thursday as Hurricane Joaquin gained strength.

But now that meteorologists believe the hurricane will stay out to sea and likely not threaten New York, de Blasio is making the trip after all.

He will address the State Innovation Exchange Conference on Friday night.

He will then journey to Baltimore for a meeting of the United States of Conference of Mayors and remain there Saturday.

Some criticized de Blasio earlier this year for increasing his out-of-state travels at the expense of the day-to-day governance of the city.
