  1. The liquor store was in Highwood on Sheridan Road and was called Pierantoni's - building is still there but the store is closed.....

    1. Hi, thank you for the info. I have the address as 406 Green Bay Road. Without your time I would have never found it. Thank you very much

  2. The house is on Green Bay Road south of Deerpath. Lake Forest, IL

    1. Thank you for that info. Now it makes sense why the house wasn't on that estate. Now I need to figure out where the other school was. Thank you again.


  3. the hotel is the Marriott Lincolnshire resort, Lincolnshire, Il.
    The door they enter through is on the North/West corner of the hotel

  4. The bus station was filmed in Homestead at US Steel where the workers caught the bus here near Pittsburgh. Only thing left are those big tall stacks. It's all torn down around here.
