This is my first map ever, made for a planned Gotham City (Non-Batman) concept thread. I know it sucks, and it´s obviously not finished.
Green=parks, green lots and residental areas with a lot of grass (Including projects).
Light grey=ordinary buildings.
Dark grey=industrial areas.
Pink=carnivals, circuses and funlands.
The premise of this map is that it´s based on different cities in America, mostly New York and Los Angeles. The mid-island, which is basicaly finished, is called Kingston, and is the central business and commercial island with many historic landmarks and supertall skyscrapers. Between the historic Financial District in the south and the touristy Midtown, there are a lot of hit-and-miss neighborhoods. Over midtown is the large King Park and it´s surrounding, affluent neighborhoods. Then you have the historical black and latino areas Northside Village and Quebrados Heights, then the commercialized neighborhoods of West and East Greenwood (Based on Hollywood), then the rich suburbs, Lakeside Beach and King Hills.
The eastern island, Rockford, is very diverse, with trendy, redevoloped neighborhoods in the west, and industrial ghettos in the east. The western island is Westerson, with the southern part being very rich. The northern and central parts are outside Gotham City borders, dominated by a large countryside and many small, unique towns. The airport is also here, and the largest city outside Gotham in Gotham County, North Beach. Gotham County is supposed to be located on the New Jersey side of the Delaware Bay.
