This Guide to New York City is Rich in history, anecdotes and Comic books-- what's that you say? you want to go to Hell's Kitchen so you look it up in this book and you'll find all about our Hell's Kitchen. But then Peter Sanderson takes you one step further and takes you through all of the historical places and Heroes that live and work in Hell's Kitchen(Daredevil/Matt Murdock) that are in the Marvel Universe.From Midtown and the fantastic four and the Baxter Building to Westchester County and the X-Men you'll find all sorts of info fun and pics. a worthwile investment for those who like to collect unusual guides to cities.

I run half and full marathons. Recently a friend asked me if I would run the 2014 NYC Marathon with her. At first I said no but later changed my mind when she told me that we'd be running through all five boroughs. That is too interesting to resist. Once I'd made the decision to proceed, then I realized I'd be seeing many notable places based upon my love of superheroes, particularly those in the Marvel universe. I did a Google search and found The Marvel Comics Guide to New York City, which I looked at and bought on Amazon. This is a wonderful book. For the comic book fan, this shows the real landmarks you've read in Marvel Comics, gives you an indication of where some landmarks would be if they really existed, and shows real places that were the inspiriation for fictionalized versions in the comics. As someone who will be running in NYC and then be a tourist checking out the hub of the Marvel universe, this book was a delightful, fascinating read. If you're a comic fan who is thinking of going to NYC or a comic fan who just wants a look behind the curtain of Marvel Comics' home territory, this book is a must read.

It arrived in time and in great condition and I thought it was very interesting. I admit I didn't actually use it to get around, I used a map of the subway instead just because it was handier, but I did enjoy reading about the different Marvel events that took place at each landmark or place I had visited, or planned to visit.
Be aware though that this was published a while ago, so none of the MCU is included.
