[video] Quick Take: Super Bowl Will Keep Cash Coming to N.Y., N.J.

NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- The 2014 Super Bowl will take place at MetLife Stadium in New Jersey, home of the New York Jets and New York Giants. TheStreet's Brittany Umar discusses the financial impact to the region. 

Ticket prices for February's Super Bowl are astronomical compared with 2013, up to $2,600, more than double last year's prices of $1,250 in New Orleans, Umar reported. 

She added that many hotels are already sold out, and residents in the area have resorted to renting out their homes for big money. 

One four-bedroom, New Jersey home is listed on Craigslist for an astounding $30,000, for a one-week rental. 

Jon Tisch, co-chairman of the board for the 2014 Super Bowl host committee, said it's not just a one-and-done weekend for the area. 

Not only will it create more jobs in the area, but more than 1 billion people will be watching the game worldwide, he said.

That may equate to more people wanting to visit the area with their family or on business, he added. 

Tisch said that the Super Bowl should generate between $550 million and $600 million dollars for the area. 

He concluded that if it all goes well, MetLife Stadium could host the Super Bowl once every 10 years or so.
