A curious coincidence! Last night, driving home from dinner with a friend who lives in upstate New York, my GPS guided me thru Salem Center. No sign of the X-Mansion, tho!

Since you were that close to them, it makes me wonder:
Are the X-Men satisfied with the way you portray them? I seem to remember the Thing and the Human Torch not being too crazy about you chronicling their adventures... ;)

Perhaps the old site of the Mansion is hidden with holograms to block satellites and people from seeing it.
Also before last month X-Men's relaunch the Mansion has been moved to Limbo!!! And after that, Central Park!!! It could have been worse: They could have moved the Mansion to Lila Cheney's Dyson Sphere!!!

One of the things that has been lost over recent decades, one of the things that kept Marvel a clearly defined separate entity from DC, is the way the books used to be grounded in their own kinds of reality. Headquarters most often represented this. The Fantastic Four had a skyscraper in Manhattan, the Avengers a mansion on the East Side, by Central Park. The X-Men had another mansion, in Westchester County. Dr. Strange had a house in Greenwich Village. Peter Parker a house in Queens.

No space satellites, hollowed out mountains or hidden caves. That would come much later, as Marvel started to see more and more cross pollination, with writers and artists drifting back and forth to DC, and more and more fans becoming the people running the show.

Eventually, there came a point when Marvel and DC were virtually indistinguishable.

(Confession: a "hollowed out mountain" is in the X-Men's future, in the ELSEWHEN timeline, but trust me! It will make sense!)
