In gearing up for Super Bowl XLVII this Sunday, Broadway is closed off from 34th Street to 47th Street. The ‘Super Bowl Boulevard’, complete with free access and free food, launched yesterday and will be open until Saturday.
Patrons can meet players like Matt Forte of the Chicago Bears, take photos with the famous Vince Lombardi Trophy (awarded each year to the Super Bowl champions), and ride down the Toboggan Run for $5. This year, the Seattle Seahawks and Denver Broncos will face off at Met Life Stadium in the Meadowlands of New Jersey.
