* ''Literature/BerlinAlexanderplatz'' is a portrayal of UsefulNotes/{{Berlin}} in the UsefulNotes/WeimarRepublic days and it really portrays the bleakness, poverty, and perverse mentality of the time and place, especially in the criminal classes of mob-bosses, low-lifes, prostitutes that appear in the books. The main character himself is a ShellShockedVeteran from the first war turned pimp. It was highly successful in its day and inspired many German-Austrian writers and directors who eventually came to America and made the original film noir.

* Rather funny, the Eastern European cities [[TheNineties in the first 10 years]] after Communism fell were almost as Noir as designed by the director of ''Film/RoboCop1987'' himself due to the drabness of Communist architecture combined with [[TheAllegedCar rusty cheapo]] [[TheEighties 1980s]] cars and buses and explosion of street vendors, small shops, advertising panels, [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking unemployed older people and young rappers]]. It was so common before the economic development [[TurnOfTheMillennium of the 2000s]] that ordinary population [[DeaderThanDisco got sick of it altogether]] and nowadays [[BerserkButton they fly into a rage]] when they see something like it.

* The home city of Haroun and Rashid in Creator/SalmanRushdie's Literature/HarounAndTheSeaOfStories is described as "[[CityWithNoName a sad city, the saddest of cities, a city so ruinously sad it had forgotten its name]]". This is at least partly due to the constant pollution from the many factories which manufacture... sadness.
