Gotham was first used in reference to Manhattan by Washington Irving in the early 19th century. The word itself is English in origin and dates from the Middle Ages. Gotham, or 'Gotam,' was the name of a real and often-ridiculed town in England, whose residents had a reputation for madness.
A variant of this story was that Gothamites were not truly mad but simply "wise enough to play the fool" - in a variety of ways they merely acted silly to gain their ends. "It was doubtless this more beguiling - if tricksterish - sense of Gotham that Manhattanites assumed as an acceptable nickname."
