9. Cortlandt Alley

Another location that location scouts can’t resist is Cortlandt Alley, in Chinatown. Luke Cage and nurse Claire Temple (Rosario Dawson) are en route to bring Scarfe downtown to One Police Plaza to turn him in and get him to testify against Stokes when they are followed in a car chase by Stokes’ men. Cortlandt Alley has the perfect mix of old Gotham, with its fire escapes, industrial shutters and narrowness. You’ll recognize Cortlandt Alley in Gotham and from the backdrop of the video for the Vampire Weekend song “Cousins.”
