Actually, according to a (really stupid and unrealistic) map made by DC, Gotham is actually in New Jersey, and Metropolis is in Connecticut. Oh, and Metropolis only has 77,000 people in it.... so, it’s the population of a moderately sized college town, and categorically NOT a metropolis. Same map says Gotham has like 700,000 people, which makes no sense either.

Anyway, they are supposed to be close to each other, and the geography in the comics has changed, but Gotham isn’t *actually* New York. It’s a New York, uhh, proxy. And at first it didn’t even exist and Batman WAS located in New York, but now it exists in a universe where it’s a monstrous city and it exists alongside New York. Metropolis should be somewhere around Philadelphia. But really, both cities are “New York” for all intents and purposes. Y’dig?

Don’t pay attention to BvS for your DC/Superman/Batman mythology.
