Super Bowl madness in NYC's Times Square

The largest show on Broadway opened in New York on Wednesday, January 29th when the city turned over a 3/4 mile stretch of Midtown for a "Super Bowl Boulevard" street fair, drawing thousands of locals and visitors.

The event, part of the build-up to Sunday's National Football League championship game, gave football fans and the simply curious a chance to see players, try their luck at kicking a field goal in Manhattan's intense wind or ride a 60-foot-high (18-meter-high) toboggan run. (REUTERS)
