There appears to have been a creative decision to emphasize the yellow glare and yellow cast of lighting created by sodium streetlights. They did not come into common use until the late 80s, but the movie is set in 1975.

Although the Angulios' address in Boston's North End was 98 Prince St., the street used to characterize events happening at that address in the picture, was actually a side street nearby Prince St. Probably a lot easier to shoot on the little side street than it would have been to shoot the scene on Prince St., which is longer, and a lot more heavily traveled than the street where the scenes were actually shot.
