Today’s trek takes me down 5th Ave through East Village, Soho and the Lower East Side of Manhattan. You will see the Flatiron Building, Union Square Park and a farmer’s market with occasional shots of the Empire State Building in the background. You also might recognize some locations from television shows such as SMASH, Sex in the City, and Seinfeld. Movie locations include looking north up 5th Ave that Loki and friends pretty much destroyed in The Avengers (2012 movie), ditto King Kong (2005 movie). You will also see St. Mark’s Church from A Beautiful Mind (2001 movie) and where Dr. Otto Octavius shows off his new invention in Spider-Man 2 (2004 movie). Hope you enjoy as you walk along with me.
