Park Row

Park Row was once a fashionable neighborhood near The Bowery district of Gotham City's East End. At least this was the case in the 1940s, when Bruce Wayne was just a boy.

This neighborhood was where Bruce's parents (Thomas and Martha Wayne) were killed, an incident that came to be known as the Park Row tragedy.

A mugger murdered them in front of young Bruce after the family had watched RoBIN HooD.[1]
