New York (WENY) - Someone had to lose the Super Bowl, but the real winner of the event was New York's economy. In a press release from Governor Cuomo's office 1.5 million people visited Super Bowl Boulevard and visitors will generate an estimated $280 million in economic activity for New York State.
Cuomo used the super-exposure to promote "Taste NY" products and tourism in Upstate New York. Nearly 100 New York vendors were featured across all the Super Bowl Host Committee events. New York hosted an estimated 230,000 out-of-town visitors during Super Bowl week.
