There location varies.
Usually Metropolis is in New York state, but some times Delaware (where it is across the Delaware Bay as Sister city to New Jersey's Gotham). In the 70's, the cities were both adjacent to New York, across the bay from each other. It is also been placed in
Kansas, as well.
Gotham is usually placed in New Jersey, but also replaced Chicago in the Nolan fics, and in Connecticut in Young Justice.
Both Cities have been place in the same place as New York in different stories and media.
Also the distance between Metropolis and Gotham varies from hundred of miles from each other, to sister cities across the Delaware Bay as said in the 70's.
Basically due to different writers, there is an inconsistency to location.
The best bet is either they are two cities located close to New York some how, or use the seventies Delaware/New Jersey Version as it allows for some consistency.
