The Somerset District is one of the less populated neighborhoods in Gotham City. It's a largely desolate area, home to Arkham Asylum.[1]


"Well, Batty wants to be a hood ornament."
Tommy Elliot[src]

The Somerset District began southern than the large Williams Viaduct and housed Arkham Asylum. When Hush kidnapped Parker Torres in order to bring her to the structure, he drove through Somerset, until he was intercepted by Batwoman, who drove the wrong way on the one way street, and was forced to flee, leaving the girl behind.

Later, when Alice and Mouse set Arkham on fire releasing all of the inmates, they spread across the neighborhood, and then the whole of Gotham, to cause chaos and havoc.[1]
