What if the Winter Olympics Were in NYC?

The New York Times created these beautiful, fantastical renderings of what a New York City Winter Olympics, and, well, it looks a lot better than Super Bowl Boulevard. Pictured above is an imaginary downhill course in Central Park that begins at 59th Street at twice the height of the Empire State Building, then slopes downward as it heads uptown.

This street luge course through Times Square makes the Super Bowl “toboggan run” look like child’s play.
