Near the beginning of the episode, when the detectives are chasing Barnett (the bad guy) they are following him through Grand Central Terminal. He attempts to escape by running to the platforms. When the detectives follow, they burst out onto the platform, at Hoboken Terminal, rather than at Grand Central. The platforms at Grand Central are dark and significantly less photogenic than those at Hoboken. See more
