Spider-Man has survived the scrutiny of a New York state safety inspector and has been cleared for further leaps through the holiday weekend.

New York State Department of Labor spokesman Leo Rosales said Friday that a new set of "very strict safety and security measures were properly in place when the show resumed Thursday night.
