Super Bowl Boulevard takes over New York City

There are several reasons Super Bowl XLVIII has received a lot of attention. From ridiculous outbursts from players like Richard Sherman to Peyton Manning's storied legacy, the Super Bowl is sure to be a game full of highs, lows, and everything in between.

What makes the Super Bowl even more unique this year is its setting: New York City & New Jersey. With thousands of pizza shops, more than a dozen sports teams, and millions of residents, New York City & New Jersey poses certain challenges and opportunities for an event as big as the Super Bowl. The red carpet has been rolled out of sorts and they've even closed down blocks of the New York City for the big game!

What does this all mean? It means an incredible scene of fans, players, and spectators gathering together in the bitter cold to celebrate America's favorite pastime. AOL ventured to Super Bowl Boulevard in New York City to see what all the commotion was about.

Check out the photos above from an incredible scene in New York City.

You have to love New York for taking over anything that gets even close. Super Bowl Blvd? REALLY? The Super Bowl is in New Jersey for God's sake... and it was so bad that the Major of the town that MetLife Stadium is in couldn't even get a ticket.. (he has a box now).. but come on... why New York? I wouldn't go there on a bet!

Do to its proximity to that cesspool state, NYC has every right to celebrate!!! And that city sure knows how to put on a party!! It's a hell of a lot more than Jersey is doing!! Give it up for NYC!!

If they "fail to forget", then it's all good. No?

Why does every body keep saying that the Super Bowl will be played in N.Y. when it's played at: East Rutherford, New Jersey?

Why many people of NY speak bad of NJ, when alot of people from NJ support the team of the giants.

I am so happy the Seahawks won!!! Wonderful game by them. I dislike Manning - he took Tebow away from Denver - payback time. Love it.

New York/New Jersey Super Bowl - why New York? Is the game being played in New York? No. Are the Giants playing? No. Jets? No. So why is it a New York Superbowl? Why not the Philly Bowl? Is it because New York sounds cool. Please give me a break. The friggin Super Bowl is in NEW JERSEY. The only connection they have is they are next door to each other. Period.
