I'm orriginally a native New Yorker, and I let you slide on the minor controversy we had about the bridge in OUTIA, the press kit is definitely wrong! Its the Manhattan Bridge in the movie not the Williamsburg! Cool

They look very similar, but it does appear to be the Manhattan Bridge.  

My brother and I will be visiting the location(s) in the Spring.

I'll fire off an email for one of the actors and see if he remembers the exact location.

Well after you sent me those stills I realize that both bridges are featured in the film which I never payed attention to or noticed before. Did you notice the bottom right hand corner of the Manhattan bridge page has almost the identical scene from the press kit?

Yes, I did.

I look forward to visiting the bridges in the spring.
