Forget the weather: There’s plenty to love about this Super Bowl town

There’s no shortage of books, songs, poems, paintings and any other type of tribute to honor New York City. So why not a few more?

As host of Super Bowl XLVIII, New York has been FOX Sports’ home away from home for the lead up to Sunday’s big game. Our talent and others took some time out this week to appreciate the city in all its glory.
