Eye on the Super Bowl: Hoboken’s Waterfront Sculpture

[slider id=’17196′ name=’Eye on the Super Bowl: Hoboken’s Waterfront Sculpture’]

A 12-foot-tall illuminated sculpture of the roman numerals “XLVIII” lights up Pier A Park in Hoboken, drawing eyes and visitors from Manhattan as football fans hop from one Super Bowl attraction to the next.

The sculpture, designed by local architect John Nastasi and comprised of more than 300 boards of plywood, is the centerpiece of the Hoboken Huddle, hosted by the Hoboken Events Committee. The weeklong event in the Mile Square City features an outdoor ice-skating rink and curling with an awesome view of Manhattan as the backdrop.

“You have not completed your Super Bowl experience until you’ve had your picture taken in Hoboken,” Mayor Dawn Zimmer said at the event’s launch.

If you’re in Midtown for this week’s Super Bowl festivities, why not make the quick and painless trip under the Hudson to the Hoboken Huddle – there are tons of great bars and eats nearby, too.
