Welcome to Manhattan, New York City's living backdrop for Marvel's blockbusting comic book creations. Be ready to get a profound insight into how the entertainment plots reflect the course of history and why comics sometimes disappear from bookstores. This self-guided audio tour narrates the stories in a lively style and provides a captivating experience for comic buffs and newcomers alike. You will start the tour at the notorious Hell's Kitchen to discover historical trivia of the neighborhood where Marvel's first office was located and the first "Marvel Comics" came out. Then, you will see the Baxter Building, a.k.a. the headquarters of the mighty Fantastic Four that became Marvel's first superhero team in response to the "Justice League" by DC. Next, you will spot differences between the MetLife Building in real life and its silver screen rendering, the Tony Stark Tower, and later, the base of the Avengers family. Dwelling near the Grand Central Terminal, you will experience the grandeur of where the final battle in the namesake movie took place. After that, you will pass by the magnificent Chrysler Building and catch up with the Spider-Man character creation story. Finally, you will make it to the prestigious Tudor City area where his antagonist, supervillain The Green Goblin, used to lodge – be amazed by the price his apartment was sold afterward! Join the tour and tune into New York City's striking cinematic scenery of the iconic Marvel comics!
