The NY/NJ Host Committee and the NFL have contributed $1 million each to community-based projects in New York.
Big officials from the NFL's head office and Mayor Mike Bloomberg gathered to make an announcement Thursday.
NFL commissioner Roger Goodell said he hopes that this financial contribution will make a difference for some of the areas that were struck by Superstorm Sandy by rebuilding facilities for kids in the five boroughs so they can remain active and healthy.
Meantime the NY/NJ Super Bowl Host Committee President Al Kelly said he is not only expecting great things for New York's economy but also for the local businesses in New Jersey.
These are the projects (in coordination with the Mayor's Fund to Advance New York City):
Playground renovation at Mahoney Playground (Staten Island)
New football field at Boys and Girls High School (Brooklyn)
New gym at Hammel Community Center (Rockaway Beach, Queens)
New football field at Kips Bay Boys and Girls Club (Bronx)
Nenovation of gym and teen center at Educational Alliance Boys and Girls Club (Manhattan)
New playground at The Sandy Ground (Rockaway, Queens)
