Super Bowl tourists in New York

New York, N.Y. The native New Yorkers are easy to spot moving fast, wearing headphones, and not really thrilled with the influx of Super Bowl visitors.

I think its going to be crazy. I think its not going to be fun community every day to Times Square. I am not excited about that. But I am sure it will be fun for the tourists.

The area from 34th to 47th and Broadway will be shutdown starting Wednesday, in order to become Super Bowl Boulevard.

From what Ive heard so far, and I am one of the guys shutting down the traffic, they dont like it. I think this is unprecedented that they are shutting down Broadway. I have never seen it.

Shutting streets down is not great for commuters, but for the tourists, like Seahawks fan and Washington state native Nathan Werner, Times Square is a great place to be.
We booked our trip a while ago, and hoped our team would make it. So it worked out perfectly, Werner said.

So far, Nathan says, everything has been fine, but you never know the reputation of New Yorkers.

You know a lot of people around the country dont think people in New York are very nice here. I dont think they are and I am from here, Werner said.
