When the police taxi service picked up the smuggler, after they were shown crossing the Verrazano Narrows Bridge, the smuggler handed the police the envelope of cash and asked if it was enough to get him to Staten Island. Having crossed the bridge, they would have already been in Staten Island. If they came from Newark Airport, they would have already been on and left Staten Island, but this wouldn't be the case as the New York City police would not have picked him up in Newark, New Jersey.
The editor, John Ottman, edited the movie on film. He felt that all the editing done electronically at the time was horrible because all the good editors were still working on film (which is much more difficult). Because of this he thought about putting "Edited on a piece of s*** Steenbeck" at the end of the credits, but instead settled for the more subtle line "Edited on film." Tim Robbins was directing 'Dead Man Walking' at the time and heard about John's idea, which sparked that film's credit ending of "This film was edited on old machines."
