Several camera-toting Wall Street residents, including YouTube user DeannaBerglia, caught amateur footage of a large fight scene -- and though the aerial vantage point does make it look a bit different, it appears to be the same brawl filmed in Pittsburgh over the summer.
A clash between Gotham City Police and escaped inmates from Arkham Asylum, led by Bane (Hardy), footage shows hundreds of extras duking it out at a smoke-filled intersection until the sound of air-horns signal the end of the take.
Patch reports that filming also took place across the Hudson River, with Anne Hathaway filming scenes as Selina Kyle/Catwoman in front of a throng of fans in Downtown Newark, New Jersey.
The Dark Knight Rises, Christopher Nolan's last entry in his Batman trilogy, arrives in theaters July 20, 2012.
