Sergio Leone was very much a hands on director

Whilst this was filmed in Queens and part of the Queensboro bridge can be seen
through the windshield of the hearse, it may have been intended that the prison
was Clinton State prison.  This would also explain why Max picks up Noodles in
the daytime but arrives at Fat Moe's in the dark.

The lettering in this still is just about readable.
