Errors in geography 

When Arthur Lustig visits Finn, Finn gives him his address as 111 Greenwhich St., which is south of the World Trade Center. The nearest subway stop is the Rector St. 1/9 train. Yet when Finn takes Arthur to the subway, they end up at the J/M/Z Chambers St. stop. When a subway train does come, miraculously it is the G train, which is the only train in the system that does not enter Manhattan at all. In addition, none of the above mentioned trains would take Arthur to JFK, his stated destination, without at least one transfer.

Factual errors 

In the scene in which Lustig is shown on TV, the commentator mentions Lustig is due for death by lethal injection. Florida only began offering lethal injection relatively recently. When Finn was a boy, the method would have been the electric chair.
