    Is Gotham City suppose to be New York city or Chicago??

    I was having an argument with my friend while we were watching the Dark Knight earlier today. Basically we were talking about something completely unrelated and it lead to an argument of what city Gotham is suppose to be in real life. I told him it's New York because ''Gotham'' has always been used as another name for New York City but he kept insisting that Chicago is gotham city because it ''resembles'' the real life city more..

    what does misc think?

    its supposed to be new york brah

    Edit:


    the naming of the city and reasoning for changing Batman's locale from Manhattan to a fictional city: "Originally I was going to call Gotham City 'Civic City'. Then I tried 'Capital City', then 'Coast City'. Then I flipped through the phone book and spotted the name 'Gotham Jewelers' and said, 'That's it', Gotham City. We didn't call it New York because we didn't want anybody in any city to identify with it."[1] "Gotham" had long been a well-known nickname for New York City even prior to Batman's 1939 introduction,[2] which explains why "Gotham Jewelers" and many other businesses in New York City have the word "Gotham" in them. The name Gotham was first popularized as a nickname for New York City in the nineteenth century periodical Salmagundi.

    What's funny is I think you can ask the same question about Metropolis. It's in the midwest but it looks like NYC.

    It's called Gotham City because Gotham is a well known nickname for New York. The city itself is based on New York.

    yea, I've always thought it was somewhere in Kansas because Superman was suppose to have been raised in a small town in Kansas and Metropolis is the 'big' city( I've always assumed that it was the 'big' city in the state )

Then I tried 'Capital City', then 'Coast City'. Then I flipped through the phone book and spotted the name 'Gotham Jewelers' and said, 'That's it', Gotham City. We didn't call it New York because we didn't want anybody in any city to identify with it."[1] "Gotham" had long been a well-known nickname for New York City even prior to Batman's 1939 introduction,[2] which explains why "Gotham Jewelers" and many other businesses in New York City have the word "Gotham" in them. The name Gotham was first popularized as a nickname for New York City in the nineteenth century periodical Salmagundi.

    what does misc think?
    I was a background actor for the latest Batman film "The Dark Knight Rises" and that scene was in downtown manhattan, nyc. So i'd say its actually a mix btwn the two, although true Gotham is supposed to be NYC, the whole classic mob scene is taken after the 1940s chicago world. So deff a mix btwn the two, but it''ll always be NYC to folks

    I know these posts are from 3 years ago but... Metropolis isn't in the midwest, it's suppose to be right across the bay from Gotham.
