Gotham City (Batman franchise)

Sure, Gotham City is the most corrupt and crime-ridden locale on this list, but it can't be that bad if people continue to live there! Gotham City has character: It's a metropolis dressed in stylish art deco, art nouveau and Gothic architecture. The ostentatious buildings, eclectic spires, Greek-styled statues and gargoyles all add to a sense of history in the day and festivity in the evening. It's the city that never sleeps, and worth giving a chance despite its infamy — and no bat credit cards required.
