As you know, Leone was a perfectionist and he always tried to recreate the reality as a wish to build an excellent contrast with the fiction.
So for the great Hotel scene with Deborah and Noodles he could not shoot it in the USA cause it had changed too much, so he decided to shoot it in...Venice where the original hotel used as a model for the one in the USA at that time. And it is the same with the train station scene when Deborah is leaving: he couldn't shoot it anymore in NY, so he did it in Paris, Gare du Nord, the model of the ancient NY's one.
Stunning!

Quoted from Conversation avec Sergio Leone, Noel Simsolo.

The grand central station/Paris station is good. Though you are supposed to be able to see French platform directions or objects and words to that effect.

I don't know the list off the top of my head. It's mentioned in the Frayling biography. I think the scenes at the harbour in which Noodles drives the car into the water.

Yeh, that and the scene where Crowning's goons are mowed down outside that rich man's club.
