A Nerd's Guide To New York City

Ahh NYC, the sprawling metropolis that inspired Metropolis, a gritty gothic landscape that inspired Gotham City, the home of X-Men, Ninja Turtles and Futurama's Planet Express.

In honor of the New York Comic Con taking place this weekend, here's a geeky tour guide's dream map of the city, showing where things would, should and might someday be located, complete with color coded genre so you can tell whether the location is from a comic book, movie, tv show or video game.

Now go forth and see the mundane real life counterparts of these fantastic locations for yourself!

New York City might be a small island, but there are many attractions to occupy your time and attention. Because Manhattan is so full of experiences, it's necessary to make the most of your touring time. Rather than crowding your schedule with generic tourist attractions, tackle New York City in a way that reveals its very core. Touring Manhattan is an experience that can bring culture shock. The pace is incredibly fast and people might seem abrupt, so go with the flow. Don't worry about being swept away; most NYC residents have no problems helping out a lost visitor.
