To celebrate the 40th anniversary of its flagship magazine, Time Out New York interviews 40 New Yorkers, including a certain friendly neighborhood Spider-Man.
By now we’re used to the wall-crawler’s wisecracks, but who could’ve guessed he was this funny? A sampling:
What’s your favorite place in New York?
Spider-Man: Well, it ain’t the George Washington Bridge, since my girlfriend Gwen died there back in issue No. 121.
If you could have a drink with our other Top 40 people—Patti LuPone, Kiki & Herb, Amy Sedaris, Jay-Z—who would you choose?
Spider-Man: I’d probably choose Jay-Z, since he’s the only one on the list who doesn’t strike me as a supervillain.
