The Narrows is the most dangerous area in Gotham City, located on an island in the middle the Gotham River. Home to poverty, disease and poor living conditions, it is also the location of Arkham Asylum.
Ever since the depression that struck Gotham City, the Narrows has been a decaying and dilapidated neighborhood filled with poverty, disease and poor living conditions. Arkham Asylum was located on the island's east shore, and the Narrows was driven into madness itself when Ra's al Ghul and the League of Shadows began their assault on Gotham City from here, starting with a mass Arkham breakout to keep the police busy and mass panic on the rest of the island caused by the vaporization of its fear toxin-tainted water supply. Since then, the Narrows was torn to pieces by its own inhabitants, leaving the entire island to be used as Arkham's grounds.
