 The Bowery is a notorious Skid Row section of Gotham City.  Before Prohibition,​ and since it's end it is the center for cheap, nasty dive bars and houses of prostitution. ​ The most notorious of the bars are [[Eddie'​s High Life|Eddie'​s High Life]], [[Murphy'​s Lament|Murphy'​s Lament]] and [[Wang'​s Last Secret|Wang'​s Last Secret]]. Each of them dirtier, smellier and grimmer than the  last.  There are a dozen cheap "​hotels"​ that are really brothels, ​ and of course [[Madam Lily's Tea Room|Madam Lily's Tea Room]] is the pinnacle of the pox-ridden business. The Bowery is a notorious Skid Row section of Gotham City.  Before Prohibition,​ and since it's end it is the center for cheap, nasty dive bars and houses of prostitution. ​ The most notorious of the bars are [[Eddie'​s High Life|Eddie'​s High Life]], [[Murphy'​s Lament|Murphy'​s Lament]] and [[Wang'​s Last Secret|Wang'​s Last Secret]].
