Super Bowl XLVlll is coming to the New York metropolitan area in less than two months, and along with the biggest sports events of the year will come droves of people. To cash in on those tourist dollars, Times Square will be refashioned as "Super Bowl Boulevard" (all space between34th and 47th) but there will be no vehicles permitted on the boulevard.
Vehicular access will be restricted from Jan. 26 through Feb. 1 from 33rd Street to 48th Street. Also be warned that 41st Street will be closed from 9 a.m. until midnight.
Expect to see a massive toboggan, which will be 180-feet long, 58-feet high and take up eight lanes. It should compliment the concert stage and viewing areas nicely.
Also, if you need help getting around the area, the MTA has you covered.
