Found this little nugget of silliness while reading the NY Post this past weekend. The article was about the various filming locations around the city that were used in the upcoming Disney film, THE SORCERER'S APPRENTICE. Here's a nice C-town anecdote....
"Things went a little less smoothly in Chinatown during a sequence in which Cage and Baruchel battle a magical dragon during a New year's celebration. Filmed on Eldridge Street over two weeks, it required some 2,000 local extras-one of whom probably wished she'd stayed home.
"A giant Chinatown-sized rat fell off a roof, bounced off an awning and fell on an extra's face," Baruchel says. "She had to go to the hospital. The rats in that neighborhood are bigger than most dogs."- NY Post
Gotta love Chinatown.
