This weekend, the annual New York Comic Con will host thousands of people from all over the country—if not the world. In the event they need help getting around, Foursquare has gathered some notable data where attendees like to go and what they like to eat.
Ahead of this year's comic gathering, Foursquare broke down its "Dungeons and Data" statistics which looks at movie goers that frequent Marvel Comics versus DC Comics, and New York Comic Con versus San Diego Comic Con attendees. The information also included which chains visitors frequent the most, what foods they like, and how that compares to average visitors. visit most, what tastes they have, what types of venues they visit more than the average user?
Comic Conventions are a bigger deal than what they seem, and their regional economic impact can be big. The first such convention started in San Diego more than 40 years ago: Today, the convention tops over 130,000 in attendance.
This year's confab in the Big Apple will feature both entertainment and literary guests like Carrie Fisher of Star Wars and Keegan Michael of Key & Peele and R.L. Stine.
