The New York Daily News recently obtained some of the NFL's plans for "Super Bowl Boulevard," a "football-themed extravaganza" that will be set up between 34th and 44th streets when Super Bowl XLVIII arrives in near New York on February 2nd. The "eight-lane, 180-foot long, 58-foot-high toboggan run [that is] able to handle up to 1,000 riders an hour" should be particularly effective at ensuring that native New Yorkers stay even further away from Times Square than they already do.
