Spider-Man Week in NYC and Marvel Tourism

Spider-Man is a creature of New York City. Few other cities have the ideal environment of tall buildings in such high density which is perfect for web-swinging. Almost anywhere else and Spidey would spend most of his time just jumping from place to place.

That being said, in honor of the upcoming opening of Spider-Man 3, New York City, is having a weeklong Spider-Man celebration. Events will be everywhere throughout the city, from zoos to libraries to museums.

One blogger, planning for this week, found a copy of a map of the Marvel Universe version of New York City, and tried to find these places in the real world. Here are his photos of Marvel tourist locations
