What a disaster! We went to the Super Bowl Boulevard event in Manhattan on Saturday, only to be stuck around 38th street in a crowd of at least 100 people trying to get through ["Boulevard of superlong lines of fans," Sports, Feb. 2].

People were yelling to let us get through, while the police wouldn't let anyone move. Then Mayor Bill de Blasio appeared, shaking the hands of the people in front.

We were stuck like sardines for what seemed like forever. Then the people in the front started to walk back through the crowd, stating that there was now going to be a news conference and no one would be allowed through.

We got to the NFL Boulevard at 1 p.m. and were back home on Long Island by 3 p.m. What a disappointment.
