Financial District, Manhattan.

The Financial District has been one of my favorite spots in Manhattan since I was really little. I remember walking around pretending I was in the Gotham City of Batman. Not much has changed as an adult. I still refer to the Financial District as Gotham. 

In terms of atmosphere, Batman writer and editor Dennis O’Neil has said that, figuratively, “Batman’s Gotham City is Manhattan below Fourteenth Street at eleven minutes past midnight on the coldest night in November. - From here.

The streets are narrow, the architecture is beautiful and the buildings cast the most amazing shadows.
