I think that has to tie-in to the end of Captain America - The First Avenger, when Cap woke up and busted out of that SHIELD facility.  And placing a landmark on Google maps isn't really that difficult.

Yes this is legit, or at least it was. I believe they had set up for a promotion.  I used to work at Time Square & on any given day you would see promo stuff like this happen.

Yesterday I was looking at an address on Google maps when I came across something that has me puzzled, and I can't tell if it's a joke or for real. I was looking for an address near Times Square n NYC, when a location popped up as S.H.I.E.L.D. HQ. At first I thought it was a joke, but then it says Tourist Attraction. The website link goes to a firewall security, there is no phone number and the street view is literally a view of the street. Here's a link

That's pretty odd. I know avengers station was on 44th. Not far from there. Wonder what the deal is with that?
