    Super Bowl Boulevard NYC


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     RVCFOTO captured the football fan excitement at Super Bowl Boulevard, where Manhattan has been turned into 13 blocks of Super Bowl festivities. From the toboggan run to free concerts and performances at night, she says there's a lot to do. "Times Square has become even more animated with all the football fans going crazy and the game did not take place yet," she said.

    Football madness in Time Square was underway today despite temperature in the low teens as New York gets ready for the 48th Super Bowl game on Sunday.

    Broadway has been turned into the Super Bowl Boulevard for about 13 blocks with lots of fun activities. Among them is a 60 foot long Toboggan with eight lanes, autograph with NFL players, NFL extra point Kick zone and viewing of the Vince Lombardi Trophy.

    NYC Mayor Bill DeBlasio along with NY Governor Andrew Cuomo and NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell were on hand for the evening opening ceremony with performances by the Harlem Boys Choir, Radio City Rockets and the cast of Jersey Boys entertained the crowd before the 20’ Roman numeral XLVIII were unveiled.

    Good luck Broncos and Seahawks on Sunday!
