One of the reasons why the University Avenue has been chosen as the ideal street is because of Stan lee's connection to it. Although he was born near Manhattan, the comic writer spent a pivotal point of his life on University Avenue and even attended high school in The Bronx. He may have moved to the West Coast later in the years but some of Lee's famous works have the backdrop of New York City with Spider-Man being the first that we can think of.
Stan Lee's contribution to the literary world with his comic books have been humongous. He has inspired generations with his impacting superheroes and impeccable stories. In the last decade, the comic god found prominence as a popular figure, much of it has to do with Marvel Studios' films that brought Stan Lee's comic strips to life.
