Superheroes in Midtown Manhattan

The Superheroes Tour in New York begins on Times Square, in Midtown Manhattan. Here, you’ll meet your guide, who most of the time dresses in the style of the tour (my guide wore a Superman cape and carried the hammer of Thor). Then you board the bus and the adventure begins right away. You will see the place where Spider-Man fought Electro and saved Mary Jane Watson and more.

The bus then takes you via the Public Library and Grand Central Terminal to the first stop: The Daily News Building. You will probably recognise this building as the Daily Planet from Superman: The Movie. From here, you’ll also see the Chrysler Building, where the Silver Surfer escaped in Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer. The bus continues on to Park Avenue, where The Battle of New York took place in The Avengers.

Flatiron District and the Statue of Liberty

The next stop is at the Flatiron Building, this remarkable building featured in Spider-Man as the Daily Bugle headquarters. Via the Lower East Side and Chinatown, where Danny Rand fought for his life in Iron Fist, you head on to the Financial District. Here you will pass various places, including where the last fight between Batman and Bane in The Dark Knight Rises took place. The tour comes to an end in Battery Park, where you can take photos of the Statue of Liberty (as seen in X-Men and Superman: The Movie). A little further along, you can step aboard the free Staten Island Ferry, that Spider-Man tried to hold together in Spider-Man: Homecoming.

Eric’s Tip: “Do you want something to eat or drink during this tour? Then it is best to bring something with you. There are multiple stops along the way but the guide tells you interesting facts about the places that you see, so it would be a shame to miss anything.”
