A Gotham based dungeon could lie beneath Crime Alley. Bruce could pull his broken body up through a hole in the ground, where his parents lay dead and Batman was born. If it only became apparent once he stood in the cold outside air, then I then wouldn't seem contrived.

Just an idea, anyway.
Cool idea. Poetic. The only problem is that Nolan didn't really make crime alley aesthetically distinctive. It looked like any other stinky and wet backdrop. So the pure aesthetic power of Batman literally climbing out of where his parents were killed might be lessened. Another instance where Nolan's visual mundane-ness hinders a great idea.
