Gotham City Architecture: The Gotham City Police Department Headquarters

Gotham City Police Department

The Gotham City Police Department Headquarters is one of the oldest and most resilient landmarks in the city. It survived the Pinkney bombings, the Gotham earthquake, No Man’s Land, and myriad other attacks by criminals and supervillains. Despite the many attacks, it is always repaired to continue upholding the law and order in a city embattled with crime and corruption. The station, which is located in the Old Gotham neighborhood, was designed in an industrial-gothic style by noted Gotham architect Cyrus Pinkney. It has continuously served as the primary headquarters for the dedicated officers of the G.C.P.D since its completion in the nineteenth century. The G.C.P.D. headquarters is also home to one of the most familiar sights in Gotham: The Bat Signal, a beacon that is used by the police commissioner to contact Batman when his help is needed.
