After you finish the Spider-Man: Miles Morales campaign, you’ll unlock a new kind of collectible item: the postcard.

For Miles’ birthday, his mom created a scavenger hunt to help celebrate. Miles needs to trek across NYC to find the cards and hear some personal messages from his late father, Jefferson Davis.

All of these postcards are in a specific order, so you chase them down one at a time.

Once you finish the campaign, head back to Miles and Rio’s apartment to pick up this postcard and start the quest. This one doesn’t come with a clip of Jefferson.

The second postcard is on the statue

Clue: Happy Birthday Miles! Ready for the best scavenger hunt ever? Here is the first clue: facing the park, with the world on our shoulders, we guard the next clue.

Head to the postcard area on the map and make your way into the pink circle. You’re looking for a metal, circular statue with four iron people under it. It’s on a stone podium next to the building, connected to a short fence. Zip to the statue and pick up the postcard near the statue.

If you’re at the statue but can’t find the postcard, use your R3 scan to highlight it.

Postcard 3 – Midtown

The third postcard is on the Empire State building

Clue: High atop the Empire State you’ll find a pair of blind eyes.

Make your way to Midtown and the postcard emblem. Climb up the Empire State until you reach the observer level — marked by a big fence and a bunch of binoculars. You’re looking for a pair of binoculars with an “Out of Order” sign. Scan the area to find the postcard nearby.

Postcard 4 – Greenwich

The fourth postcard is on the fossil

Clue: Find the fossil hiding among the modern. Don’t forget to look up!

This one is pretty easy. Make your way to the postcard area in Greenwich and you’ll find yourself outside the Museum of Modern Art. Move to the front of the building and climb onto the balcony above the door. You’ll find the postcard on top of the shell fossil.

Postcard 5 – Financial District

The fifth postcard is on a lamp

Clue: Where money is king, you’ll find great tunes, hanging among the lights.

Go to the postcard icon in the financial district and you’ll see a club with a bunch of light in the outdoor eating area. Web-zip up to one of the lamps on the wall (you’re looking for a row of pink hearts). You’ll find the postcard hanging on the line just above a speaker.

Postcard 6 – Chinatown

The sixth postcard is on the lobster

Clue: Nestled beneath the Stuyvesant lives a monster of a good meal.

This one is pretty tough to miss. Head to the postcard location in Chinatown. Circle the building until you find the giant lobster hanging above the door. Jump onto the lobster and pick up the postcard on its tail.

Postcard 7 – Upper East Side

The seventh postcard is on a mailbox

Clue: No letter enters this artsy castle without stopping at the gate.

Head to the postcard location in the Upper East Side and make your way to the front gate. Go down to the street level and investigate the mailbox hanging on the gate. There’s a postcard hanging here.

Postcard 8 – Back to Harlem

The final postcard is on a basketball hoop

Clue: Beneath the hoop where you learned to fly, your journey comes to an end.

Time for the bittersweet emotions to really hit home. Head back to Harlem and make your way to the postcard location. Land in the basketball court and investigate the basket. There’s a postcard hanging out on the pole.

You’ll get a final message from your dad and the Memory Lane trophy.
