Yancy Street is one of the main thoroughfares in New York City's Lower East Side neighborhood of Manhattan, connecting the Bowery to the Williamsburg Bridge leading to Brooklyn across the East River.

It is home to the Yancy Street Gang, notorious tormentors of Ben Grimm.[2]

When the Serpent returned to Midgard, he summoned various Hammers to Earth. One, the Hammer of Angrir, landed on Yancy Street and, when claimed, transformed the Thing into Angrir, Breaker of Souls. He then destroyed part of Yancy Street in a single attack.[3]

Points of Interest



  • Yancy Street is apparently a long-standing area of almost historic proportions. Jeff Mace noted growing up there prior to World War II.[4]
