“I Feel Pretty” is Schumer’s 2nd New York-based film and besides the real NYC locations, the filmmakers also used Boston as a double for New York City with scenes taking place in Harrison Avenue, Tremont Street and Washington Street, of which would not generally be included, but due to the fact that it is supposed to be New York City, the decision has been made to include some of the Boston film locations.
