There's apparently less than 5 alleyways in all of New York City, most New York City alleyways in film are actually filmed in Chicago or one of those few alleyways, which is almost exclusively used as a shooting location.
There's almost certainly more gas stations in NYC than that but I can't think of a single time I've seen a gas station in something set in New York City.
@idesofmerch One of the alleys is near Great Jones Ave and I used to pass it all the time.
