Powers/Abilities/Functions: Up NYC functioned as a typical upscale shoe store.

History: (Season's Beatings#1/2) - On the night before Christmas Eve, Miles Morales and his friend Ganke Lee waited in a long line outside the Up NYC store for the store's Midnight Sneaker Lotto in hopes of getting a new pair of designer sneakers. While in line, Miles admitted that he didn't feel right waiting in line to buy a Christmas present for himself when he had already been given so much in his life. Miles soon jumped out of line when his Spider-Sense activated, leaving Ganke still in line.

Comments: Created by Jason Latour and Chris Brunner.

One of the brands of shoes being sold in Up NYC was a brand called "McFly" and featured the logo resembling a silhouette of a man flying through the air on a board. This is an obvious homage to the Back to the Future film series in which the protagonist Marty McFly flies on a futuristic Hoverboard.
