Super Bowl Boulevard
There are just seven days left until kickoff on Super Bowl Sunday and the Tri-State area is in full swing gearing up for the big game.
Police are blanketing midtown Manhattan with temporary surveillance cameras as one of many security measures being taken to protect visitors for the Super Bowl.
The big game is still almost two weeks away, and while there will be all sorts of events throughout the metropolitan area of nearly 20 million, the excitement hasn’t quite started to spike yet.
The outdoor fan fest runs during the week of the Super Bowl and will feature several stages and football themed activities.
Police officials say security for the Super Bowl will include about 4,000 government and private officers assigned to MetLife Stadium on game day.
“We can get about 700 to 1,000 people down that thing in an hour,” Supovitz said on the “Boomer & Carton” show.
Next year’s Super Bowl may be in New Jersey — but New York City is making sure it’s part of the action.
