Stan Lee already has a street in his native New York next to the institute where he studied as a young man.
He left us three years ago, but the shadow of Stan Lee and his memory are still very present in the world of comics and superheroes , it was he who turned Marvel publications into the cultural references that they are now and that triumph so much on paper as in film or television.
A unique person who has marked young people of many generations and who deserves more than anyone a tribute in his native New York, where both New Yorkers and the millions of tourists who visit the city each year will be able to walk along Stan Lee Street that has been established in the borough of the Bronx, off University Avenue, and between Brandt Place and West 176th streets.
Although Lee was actually born in Manhattan, the Bronx has been the chosen place to name a street because it was where his parents moved when the writer was still a teenager, and it was at the DeWitt Clinton Institute where he demonstrated his extraordinary abilities to create characters and tell stories . In fact, the institute has the entrance of its wing dedicated to the Baccalaureate of Fine Arts on the new Stan Lee Street .
Among the many characters that came out of Lee’s mind, one must undoubtedly mention the one he created with Steve Ditko, and who to date is the most successful of all Marvel publications: Spider-Man , which he is going to release. his next movie, Spider-Man: No Way Home in December of this year.
