JC might be a option too. Kind of a middle ground, can take the path stay out all night if you want in the city and might be a little cheaper. Not too bad a trip back to the hotel either.

Wow, prices are $1200 and still falling, even with forecasts to 50 degrees. It seems a lot of people were on the fence but now it is just too late now. People in the NYC area could gobble up some of the tix though:

Super Bowl XLVIII weather forecast improves, ticket prices keep falling - Morning Call

Had the stadium been indoors, the people on the fence would have hit the trigger early on when a blizzard was still in the forecast and prices would probably be one or two thousand dollars more per ticket.

This is the exact reason why a dome stadium is a pretty good idea.

The Super Bowl has a shrunken significance in the New York area. Aint the Jets or Giants, so why should they care?

Local home fan supporters are typically pretty insignificant to SB ticket prices ..... it's not like saints fans were clamoring to watch the niners and ravens

There are certainly a lot less tickets available.

Stub Hub: Cheapest $1,855. 935 tickets left.
Ticketmaster: Cheapest $2,041. 332 tickets left.

Yet the ticket prices were pretty high for the Niners/Ravens game in New Orleans.

I hope all Bronco fans who traveled to this game from Denver are stupid rich. Can't imagine paying to see this debacle.

The lowest priced tix i saw on Stub Hub was 1.5k and that was about a week out. They hovered there and as the tickets started running out they moved up a bit but not much..

If memory serves me correctly, that's pretty close to tix prices for the last 3-5 Super Bowls. I have only been tracking costs within the past 5 or so games just to see if they drop to a manageable number and perhaps I could jump on 'em.

Personally, I would jump on a pair of Super Bowl tix if they were around $750 each.. or about 1.5k for a pair.. if I was not a fan of either team. Now, if my team ever makes it back to a SUPER BOWL, i am ready to pay 4-5k for a pair just to go with my son. That is one of those bucket list things.. of course if that doesn't happen in the next decade or so, I may get shut out whether my team makes it or not because of the cost of the tix!
