Peter's has lived in various places through his long comic book career. This
profile will attempt to catalog the locations and make reference to images
whenever possible. It's a work in progress so please bear with us.
The Marvel Encyclopedia (Vol. 4): Spider-Man has a map of Manhattan which
indicates the geographic location of many of these places, the lookup reference
numbers are provided where available. A revised map is available in Marvel
Atlas #2. A very early map was provided in Amazing Spider-Man (Vol. 1)
Annual #5 (Story 2).
In order, Peter has called the following places "Home".
- Aunt May and Uncle Ben's Home, Forest Hills. First seen there
Amazing Fantasy #15. Not shown on Manhattan Map (off eastern edge of map).
For images, see Spider-Man: Parallel Lives.
- In Amazing Spider-Man #46, Peter moves into an apartment he shares with
Harry Osborn. Manhattan Map  in East Village, "a few blocks from campus".
The apartment is trashed by a pumpkin bomb in Amazing Spider-Man #136.
It was profiled in Amazing Spider-Man (Vol. 1) Annual #4 (Story 5).
- In Amazing Spider-Man #138, Peter moves in with Flash Thompson, but
doesn't stay long.
- In Amazing Spider-Man #139, Liz Allan finds a new apartment for
Peter, on 12th Street in Chelsea. Amazing Spider-Man Annual #13 (Story 3)
gives an apartment plan and pictures, and gives the address as 410 Chelsea St.
(right off 8th Avenue). Manhattan Map . It was profiled incorrectly in
Amazing Spider-Man (Vol. 1) Annual #13 (Story 3), and corrected in
Amazing Spider-Man (Vol. 1) Annual #15 (Story 3).
- The Chelsea apartment is firebombed in Web of Spider-Man #11, and Peter
has no insurance. Peter continues to live there, and MJ helps him clean it up
and paint it a little in Amazing Spider-Man (Vol. 1) #273. Mrs. Muggins
threatens to evict Peter, but Mary Jane Watson helps him out and has the
place completely repaired in Web of Spider-Man #15.
- At some stage in here (during the Denny O'Neil run), does Peter move into a
hotel? Is that because of the firebombing? Also, the Black Cat moves in for a
while doesn't she during the Peter David run? Issue references required for
- Peter and Mary Jane get married, and return together to the Chelsea St.
Apartment after their honeymoon. But Mary Jane is having some notable success,
and they can afford a better place. In Amazing Spider-Man (Vol. 1) #300
they move into the Bedford Towers, which is owned by Jonathan Caesar. They
move their furniture in Amazing Spider-Man (Vol. 1) #301. Bedford Towers
was profiled in Amazing Spider-Man (Vol. 1) Annual #22 (Story 3)
- When Caesar is imprisoned (for kidnapping Mary Jane), the Parkers are
evicted from Bedford Towers in Amazing Spider-Man (Vol. 1) #314. They move
back into Peter's old room with Aunt May at Forest Hills.
- They stay with Aunt May for a while, but struggle for lack of privacy. In
Amazing Spider-Man (Vol. 1) #321, Harry Osborn offers them the loft
on the top floor above the apartment in Soho where Harry and Liz themselves
live. Mary Jane moves in during Web of Spider-Man #57. Their house-warming
party is held in Amazing Spider-Man (Vol. 1) #326. The Soho Loft was
profiled in Amazing Spider-Man (Vol. 1) Annual #24 (Story 4).
- In Spectacular Spider-Man (Vol. 1) #205, Liz Allen tells the Parkers
that she has sold the entire building and they all have to leave. Mary Jane
quickly uses her new-found wealth and her contacts and they take out a mortgage
on a Brownstone on the Upper East Side, as described in Spectacular Spider-Man
(Vol. 1) #206. The building is first seen in Amazing Spider-Man (Vol. 1)
#386. Moving Day is shown in Spectacular Spider-Man (Vol. 1) #208
(Story 2). Peter is helped to move by his "parents", Richard Parker and
Mary Parker. See Amazing Spider-Man (Vol. 1) Annual #28 (Story 5) for
sketches of the Brownstone, including its spacious secret "Spider-Lab" in the
- Peter and MJ move to Portland briefly at the conclusion of The Greatest
Responsibility, allowing Ben Reilly to become Spider-Man. The place they
stay is shown in Spider-Man: Final Adventure #1.
- They return to New York in Spider-Man #66 to investigate the "Spider-Man
Skeleton". They stay in a hotel temporarily (Peter refers to the hotel as "The
Ritz" in Sensational Spider-Man #4).
- In Spider-Man #69 JJJ offers Peter a job, and they decide to stay in New
York. They move back into Aunt May's place in Forest Hills, which MJ's Aunt
(Anna Watson) has seemingly maintained - e.g. as shown in Web of
Spider-Man #127. In Amazing Spider-Man #413 Peter and MJ unpack some of
their things, and the rest of their stuff is shipped from Portland in
Spider-Man #70. Living with Aunt Anna is difficult for Peter/Spider-Man.
Anna is suspicious of Peter's comings and goings, and eventually accuses him of
having an affair (in what issue?).
- Aunt May returns to life in Amazing Spider-Man (Vol. 1) #441 courtesy of
the "John Byrne Relaunch". MJ's career is going well, and Peter and MJ can
afford to move into a luxury city apartment (the "Byrne" Apartment). This seems
to occur behind the scenes between Spider-Man (Vol. 1) #98 & Amazing
Spider-Man (Vol. 2) #1. Aunt May is still fragile, and moves in with them so
that they can care for her. Anna Watson remains in the Forest Hills house.
- Then Mary-Jane is seemingly killed in Amazing Spider-Man (Vol. 2) #13.
In Amazing Spider-Man (Vol. 2) #15 Peter goes to Latveria to search for her,
leaving Aunt May to visit back at Forest Hills with Anna Watson. Peter returns
in Amazing Spider-Man (Vol. 2) #16 to find that MJ's manager has screwed him
over and his rent is overdue.
- Peter is forced to stay at the down-market "Apple Hotel" in Peter Parker:

thrown onto the street in Peter Parker: Spider-Man (Vol. 2) #17.
- Randy Robertson suggests in Peter Parker: Spider-Man (Vol. 2) #18
that Peter could maybe move in with him. Peter does move in, as shown in
Peter Parker: Spider-Man (Vol. 2) #19. His neighbors included Caryn
- Peter moved into a new place (tiny? crappy?) in Amazing Spider-Man (Vol.
2) #30, just after MJ re-appears in Peter Parker: Spider-Man (Vol. 2) #29.
Mary Jane doesn't stay with Peter at this stage, she eventually leaves for the
- Peter & MJ are reconciled in Amazing Spider-Man (Vol. 2) #50. MJ moves
in with Peter in his apartment some time around Amazing Spider-Man (Vol. 2)
- That apartment was destroyed (when/how?), Peter & MJ move into Aunt May's
old place in Forest Hills.
- The Forest Hills home is destroyed by Charlie Weiderman in Amazing
Spider-Man (Vol. 1) #518. They move into Avengers Tower in Amazing
Spider-Man (Vol. 1) #519.
- Peter and MJ leave during Civil War, in Amazing Spider-Man #535. Pete
wakes up MJ and Aunt May, telling them to get out of the building before he and
Iron Man have a brief fight (shown in Civil War #5 and Amazing Spider-Man
#536. They stay in the "Highway 40" motel.
- Suddenly in One More Day, Peter's back in Forest Hills, May is alive,
and the house is magically restored by Mephisto.
UNSORTED: There's a map or photos of an apartment in Web of Spider-Man Annual
#3 that is yet to be inserted into here.
