Downtown destruction

Movie set showing crumbled buildingsIf you live in Chicago or Los Angeles you're used to seeing your city destroyed like this. It's still relatively rare for Cleveland.

What you see is a movie set for an upcoming Avengers film. Cleveland is a stand-in for New York.

This scene shows destruction on "42nd Street" after a battle between Thor and Captain America. The actual location is East 9th and Prospect.

We walked a few blocks to Public Square where the old Higbee's building had a new marquee, making it the SchossPlatz Theater in Stuttgart, Germany.

It was great fun to see hundreds of people roaming around downtown on a Tuesday night. Wish that happened for real.
