HOBOKEN AND BEYOND – Super size that, please. An enormous set of Roman numerals, XLVIII, will be constructed on the Hoboken waterfront before next February in celebration of the 48th Super Bowl, which will be played at MetLife Stadium in the Meadowlands.

The announcement was made last night at a meeting of Hoboken residents and business people who together form the loosely organized Hoboken Events Committee, which was founded a year ago to coordinate Hoboken’s Super Bowl preparation.

“I’ve been saying for the past year that if we build it, people will come,” said Scott Katz, a local film director and the head of the Hoboken Events Committee. “Now we’re going to build something, and people will come.”

The announcement was made at a get-together at Katz’s house which was attended, amongst others, by Hoboken Mayor Dawn Zimmer and Chairman of the Board of Chosen Freeholders Anthony Romano.

Katz said that the group has applied for a grant to cover the cost of constructing the numerals, but that in order to receive the grant, the group needs to match 25 percent of the cost, around $3,700, in the next three weeks. –
