NY has been known as "Gotham" Unfortunately, Batman is not filmed there anymore and prefers Chicago

Even if a movie is set in New York, filming may not take place there. Back a few years ago when the Canadian Dollar was cheap, Toronto was often the setting for New York, and a number of movies were shot there.

Yeah.. Batman ditched the original Gotham. How do you think crime dropped so significantly in New York? I guess we don't need him anymore. Gonna miss the bat sign though..

In this current set of Batman films, Gotham is Chicago. It was pretty clear in the last movie, and the Batman crew was filming in Chicago much of this year. Pick almost any day or weekend this summer, and you could find a film crew somewhere downtown there.

Chicago would make a better set for Gotham than NY. It has those canals and elevated rail system within The Loop.

It's the hillsides on the west side of Tuen Mun, and not likely anywhere near the water across from the airport.

I meant Tuen Mun is right across the airport. Anyway, it's an impressive vantage point and it must be tricky especially at night

You've gotta be kidding me about Istanbul. That's nothing compared to HK, NYC, Chicago, Shanghai, LA, SF, Seattle, or almost every other skyline in the world.

Huh, I didn't think you'd be able to see Hong Kong Island from Tuen Mun... so far away.

It's more like the vantage point and weather.
