Universal Studios Hollywood: Many weeks of shooting on New York Street on the Universal backlot, while parts of it were still under construction following the 1990 fire.
Disney Studios: Dance rehearsals and general fitness training took place on soundstages at Disney Studios, along with some indoor scenes.

Walt Disney Pictures live-action musical which was the first to shoot on the newly rebuilt New York Street sets at Universal following the 1990 fire. William Sandell was the Production Designer on the movie who made a relatively small area of backlot look like New York City. 

The sets were extended using beautiful matte paintings by Syd Dutton at Illusion Arts.

The large cast of teenagers worked on the Universal backlot for many weeks - they made great use of the new camcorder technology and shot their own horror movie during their breaks. The result, Blood Drips Heavily on Newsies Square can sometimes be found online.
