New York hasn’t been the same since Spider-Man crawled into town, but it seems like the citizens of our fair city are divided on whether that’s a good thing or not. We asked you how Spider-Man has affected your life and our (intern’s) phone rang off the hook the entire week! What did New Yorkers have to say?

Spider-Man inspires me. I start thinking of those webs and how they’re connections from building to building, person to person, a web of healing energy… and it just cools my aura. As someone born without a chi (my burden), Spider-Man acts as both spirit animal and muse. All I need to do is think of red and blue and my poetry just flows. Anybody who’d like to hear my arachnid-inspired work can catch me at the Union Square Poetry Hall on Tuesdays at 9:30 PM.
