* In ''WesternAnimation/{{Spider-Man The Animated Series}}'', the Kingpin's lair is in the Chrysler building. There's a secret underground entrance so people not in the know won't find out where his base is (even though the lair's high ceiling ''looks'' like the interior of the Chrysler Building's spire might be expected to look). Of course, five seasons later, enough airborne bad guys have waltzed in and out that ''someone'' oughta suspect that something about that [[VillainWithGoodPublicity nice philanthropist]] Wilson Fisk isn't kosher.

* In 1978's ''[[{{Film/Superman}} Superman: The Movie]]'', LexLuthor is hiding in a defunct wing of the DC equivalent of Grand Central Station. This example is unusual in that the police ''actually suspect'' Luthor's presence in there, but one detective is mowed down by a train when he gets too close.

Note this trope does '''not''' cover bases in or under ''fictitious'' landmarks like ''ComicBook/FantasticFour'''s Baxter Building or [[FictionalCounterpart "almost" landmarks]] like "The Jeffersonian Institute" in ''{{Bones}}''. It also does not cover a fictional agency openly using a landmark as their base, such as [=UNIT=] operating out of the UN building in ''Series/DoctorWho''.
