Open house: A visit to the birthplace of Superman

Christopher Irving, the writing half of the Graphic NYC blog, paid a visit to Cleveland recently, and he couldn’t resist a visit to the home of Superman creator Jerry Siegel. He ended up chatting with owner Jefferson Gray, who had no clue, when he bought the house in 1983, of its historic significance. Three years later, Gray got a letter from the city, which planned to designate the house as a landmark, and ever since then, Superman has been a big part of his life. Gray gave Irving a tour of the house, including the attic where Siegel and pal Joe Shuster dreamed up the Man of Steel, now filled with a tantalizing array of Superman memorabilia. While he may be one of the few favored with a tour, Irving is not the only pilgrim. “People come by, leave letters and things on the porch,” Gray told hm. “People come from all over—It’s a joy.”
