In the movie they called it the 69th St. Bridge and it was supposed to be in New York (obviously), but it was actually filmed on the old Chain of Rocks Bridge between St. Louis and Illinois.

Matt Dillon and his racetrack friend had a beer there in one brief shot. Cuzzy's has all of that defaced money on the wall. I think I've only been there once or twice.
