    Someone already answered but — yes, Lincoln Center. ( My dad grew up in the old neighborhood, his house, school, basketball field, in full view and he frequented the “fountain shop” as a teen, hundreds of families were all moved out to other apartments for the pre-construction so the neighborhood for a few blocks was a perfect abandoned movie set-)

  4. I often joke to my passengers that the movie had to be kept to the shooting schedule or else the Jets and Sharks would have been dancing on the street with a wrecking ball smashing buildings in the background!
