A Fantastic Cameo

Ah, Spider-Man doing what Spider-Man does best: web-slinging and hunting down dangerous super-criminals. Note that the colorists for the strip neglected to make it actually look like nighttime in the strip. Also note the brief Fantastic Four cameo in the panel where the couple is watching television. In an ideal world, Spider-Man would run into another costumed crusader ever other storyline or so, but I only remember him teaming up with the X-Men's Beast and Namor, the Sub-Mariner. I think the Hulk showed up as well, but I'm not sure.

This is a point that should have been raised far earlier (and probably has been), but is even JJJ enough of a doofus that he wouldn't put together the "Peter Parker moves to LA/Spider-Man moves to LA" thing? And if he is that stupid, wouldn't somebody else be able to put the pieces together?

I think Jonah makes himself think Peter Parker isn't Spider-Man. I think long ago he put the pieces together, didn't like how they fit, and sealed that conclusion deep within his mind.

As for the rest of New York, they're probably rather apathetic about the whole thing. I'm sure a few people probably put the pieces together, though, as it's been shown in the past not to be that difficult.

Besides, Spider-Man's identity, at least in the comic strip universe, is relatively useless information. Most of his enemies wind up dead or imprisoned at the end of the storyline they appear in.
