The largest show on Broadway opened in New York on Wednesday 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.

Officials estimate that 1 million people would visit the 13 blocks between 34th Street and 47th Street closed off to cars for attractions that also included a concert stage where performers such as Broadway star Michael Cavanaugh and Blondie are scheduled to perform nightly.
