Will Bayley Seton Hospital Of Staten Island Be Gotham's Arkham Asylum?


The psychiatric hospital that treats the criminally insane of Gotham is Arkham Asylum. And, as you would expect, it's often the cause of the problems as well. A Bedlam for the city, it has become a staple of the Batman comic books.

In the Gotham TV series, we have had a reference to drugs used by the Asylum, but also that it has been closed down. Well, it looks like it might be reopening.

Looks like a strong contender for Arkham Asylum to me…
