Danny Fingeroth
Wed, January 20th, 2016 | 6:00 pm

6 pm: Guests will visit Superheroes in Gotham and can take a selfie with Batman and his Batmobile

7 pm: Watch the parade of superheroes

7:30 pm: Speaker will take the stage 

Join us for a FREE evening with comics historian and former Marvel Editorial Director Danny Fingeroth and see our current exhibition Superheroes in Gotham. Fingeroth will present a slideshow tour of New York’s comic book landmarks, both real and imagined. Many of the world’s greatest superheroes were born in New York, and their epic comic book adventures were based in cities similar to the Big Apple, like Gotham City and Metropolis. View the offices where the most famous superheroes were created and gaze upon the sites where the characters lived, worked, and battled. Who knows—your own apartment may share a secret piece of New York’s superhero history! To reserve your spot, please RSVP to koconnor@nyhistory.org.
