Annotations not being placed on map

I'm trying to place an annotation (pin) on the map, and the pin is not showing on the simulator (there is no pin placed). I receive no errors in the code. Below is my viewDidLoad.

import UIKit
import MapKit

class MapViewController: UIViewController {

var itemStore: ItemStore!
var mapView: MKMapView!

override func viewDidLoad() {

mapView = MKMapView()

let annotation = MKPointAnnotation()
annotation.coordinate = CLLocationCoordinate2D(latitude: 40.71304, longitude: -74.0072)
annotation.title = "Test"


Remove mapView = MKMapView(). This line creates a new MKMapView instance, while what you want to do is use the one that you created on your Storyboard. If you are not using a Storyboard, than you should use another initializer of MKMapView that sets its size as well.
