Gotham is New York.

I thought Gotham was a fictional city.

Gotham is a nickname sometimes used for New York City, and while Batman's Gotham is based on NYC, it's not meant to actually be NYC as we know it.

I've heard it said that Metropolis is NYC during the day; Gotham City is NYC at night. (Alone. In Central Park.)
