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.
