other additions like the elevated tracks in the Spidey/Ock subway fight (which was actually shot in Chicago).
Actually, NYC has had an "El" in the past, and parts of it still remain, albeit unused.
Well, yes, and there are elevated tracks still in use in Queens (which makes me wonder why the movie scene wasn't just set there, considering that Peter Parker lives in Queens). But the point is that the movie used the real New York as a starting point and exaggerated/added to it. It's heightened realism rather than strict realism.
