Gotham City is the virtual capital of Dieselpunk. Once a nickname of New York City, introduced by good old Washington Irving in early 19th century (and derived from a Nottinghamshire village famous for its simpletons), it obtained an all-new meaning in 1930s, evolving into a synonym of all things dark. Modern Gotham can be found far from Manhattan. With a sharp eye and a bit of inspiration you can see every modern megalopolis as Gotham City – and Toronto (Ontario, Canada) is no exclusion.
- Dieselpunk is a sub-culture and genre that combines the zeitgeist of the 1920s, 30s and 40s with modern tastes and sensibilities.
