Superheroes in New York Walking Tour
From US$35.00
Heed the call for justice during this 2-hour superhero and comic book-themed walking tour of New York City. Explore the city’s most famous superhero movie sites and visit the locations where artists and writers developed some of your favorite characters. Whether you’re into Batman or Superman, Daredevil or Iron Man Tony Stark, you’re sure to enjoy the trip.
What to Expect
Meet up with your guide at the United Nations in the afternoon, beginning the tour with a stroll down 42nd Street. Check out the apartment of the Green Goblin, and take a trip past the Daily News Building, used as a filming location in the original ‘Superman’ film starring Christopher Reeve.
You’ll then get a ‘behind-the-scenes’ look at a bar known as a famous hangout for New York’s comic artists. Also along 42nd Street are the Chrysler Building and Grand Central Terminal (with ‘Stark Tower’ looming nearby). Continue along Park Avenue, stopping to explore the historic heart of ‘Publishers’ Row,’ birthplace of some of the world’s most famous comics. You’ll see the location of the offices of Will Eisner and Bob Kane, and then see filming locations used in TV shows like ‘Gotham’ and ‘Daredevil.’
Throughout the trip, you’ll hear plenty of fascinating stories and insights into comic book history from your guide, including details about how Kryptonite was created, where Batman was saved from cancellation, and the location of keepsake left behind for NYC by The Avengers.
