This film is set in New York, but in fact nearly the whole film was made in England, all the scenes where Tom Cruise walks through the streets were filmed on sets. This is because director Stanley Kubrick had a fear of flying, and preferred to work in England which had been his home for years. There are some shots of the real New York but these were done by a second unit. If you look closely you'll notice the same building fronts reappearing in various scenes, and the same cars driving through the streets. They must have brought in American cars to create the traffic and cars parked in the streets, they also use cars that are available in both America and Britain, such as Jeep Cherokees, Chrysler Neons, Mercedes, BMWs and Volkswagens.

Given Kubrick's obsessive attention to detail (before he made this film he employed a photographer to spend a year taking pictures of shop fronts and streets in London) I wonder how much he had to with the selection of cars that appear on the New York streets (actually mostly studio sets in England) :think: If you watch the film closely you can see some cars appearing several times.
