NYC Foulton Street Subway in #Toronto

This American subway entrance goes nowhere, it sits as a prop for a Hollywood North filming of Adam Sandler's movie 'Pixels'. The rusty, green metal stairway was at the intersection of Bay and Adelaide Streets in the financial district. The Sony picture production stars Adam along with Peter Dinklage and Josh Gad as they defend 'New York City', or the Big Apple, from hostile aliens.
Several other iconic USA props are placed nearby - still waiting for the US Postal carrier. Take a tour of New York after the jump.

It was initially setup without the lights, signs and ads

American Department of Transportation signs replace the local Toronto signs
Two massive compact fluorescent light-bulbs were placed beside each streetlight along Bay St to light up the roadway for filming.
There are a lot of branded New York City yellow cabs to help with the atmosphere
The last time the subway stop showed up was at another intersection
