NEW YORK (CBSNewYork/AP) — Next year’s Super Bowl may be in New Jersey — but New York City is making sure it’s part of the action.
Mayor Michael Bloomberg and NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell on Thursday previewed a week of New York City events leading up to the February 2014 game at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, N.J. It will be the first Super Bowl in the area.
New York’s piece of the Super Bowl spectacle will include closing Broadway from 34th to 44th street for a free football fan festival. The portion will be closed to traffic during the hours when “Super Bowl Boulevard” is active from Jan. 29 through Feb. 1.
