Two hundred metres of 8th Street South and surroundings were duplicated by production designer Carlo Simi and his team on the outskirts of Rome (near Prietralata) on the Via delle Messid'oro. According to Luca Morsella this location belonged to De Paulis Studios - producer Arnon Milchan purchased the land for the production. Simi who was in charge of customising the real life period streets in Brooklyn measured these buildings himself to be certain the duplicates in Italy would match.
If you do not object, you have just written an entry for the SL Encyclopedia.

No objections Dave Afro

It would be interesting to know why they couldn't build all the sets at Cinecitta especially when you think of the amazing exterior sets they built for Scorsese's Gangs Of New York?  Was Cinecitta smaller back in 1982 or was it just a case of other movies being shot at the studio at the same time?   Fellini shot " And The Ship Sails On" at Cinecitta the same year and it would have included a large ocean liner type set 🤔
