Yeah, no you didn't. 90% of those locations were built specifically on a set lot for the film, at Carolco Studios, which no longer exists.

One of the few areas that is still standing, a glue factory, is not legally accessible by the general public.

Not to mention, the only people who actually know where the real-life areas they shot in are the ones who worked on or acted in the film. The odds that you, a 13 year old kid, while passing through a 41.5 mile wide city, just so happened to stumble upon a specific alleyway that a character allegedly passed through in the shadow of night 25 years ago, are slimmer than an anorexic arm width. & that's assuming they even used a genuine alleyway at all, considering they had built an entire city-scape for their own personal use, they wouldn't need one. That's a bustling city, were those supposed places to still exist, they would likely be unrecognizable after all these years.
