A new video takes viewers through New York City and highlights the spots that have been featured in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Just like in the comics, a lot of the biggest events in the history of the Marvel Universe take place in New York City. It’s home to many of the company’s heroes and plays a part in many of their stories. A video released by Vanity Fair pinpoints where many of the events took place in relation of one another and around the city.
The video points out some of the obvious connections (notably, Steve Rogers growing up in Brooklyn and Peter Parker hailing from Queens) and fight sequences, but the video also points out some quietly cool aspects of the MCU version of New York City.

S.H.I.E.L.D. has a base of operations right next to Times Square, Stark Tower is actually the MetLife Building and the Stark Expo from Iron Man 2 being in Flushing Meadows Park are all little details that can be easy to miss, but the video manages to highlight.
Although, there are some omissions from the list. Notably, the Hulk’s battle in Harlem from the climax of The Incredible Hulk is missing from the map, as is anything from the Netflix Marvel shows and their tenuous connection to the MCU.
