Ever visited any places that resembled MKs urban stages?

Obviously I know that pretty much everyone has walked in a subway and a bridge, but are there are places, in any towns, that look eerily similar to any of MK's urban stages? Any subways with pink pavement like MK3's, or bridges with those tower things that you could see on both ends of the background? Any places that resemble a MK urban stage, down to the last detail (excluding fictional elements like Shao Kahn's tower or the MK logo in the bank and rooftop stages, of course)?

Design-wise, the urban stages in MK9 seemed more realistic (not counting the monsters, and the dawn and dusk versions of the rooftop). Like areas I'm more likely to find when I go the the US one day. Whereas MK3's subway, the streets above it, and the bridge, despite being realistic settings, had a surreal quality to them. Maybe it's just me.

As I recall form pages of EGM many years ago, most of MK3's urban stages were based on actual Chicago scenery at the time.

I always felt The Subway was based on the Harrison Red Line station in Chicago.

The Rooftop in MK3 looks like it could've been based on the Harold Washington Library, with the owls replaced with gargoyles. In fact, The Bank looks like the interior of the library.

The Street, both in MK3 and MK9, reminds me of the drawbridges in downtown Chicago, particularly the ones near Merchandise Mart.
