Today's map comes from Marvel Comics, by way of the Travel Channel's New York City page. Click on the little circles to learn about all the superhero hotspots-- Doctor Strange's mansion in Greenwich Village, Daredevil's apartment in Hell's Kitchen, the spot in Central Park where the Punisher's family was murdered, and of course, Forest Hills, where Spiderman grew up. The map also mentions that the Thing grew up on the Lower East Side. That makes perfect sense, because we recently learned that he's Jewish. Does that make him the earliest Jewish superhero?
