  3. Is this list strictly for the TV series or does it include the movie locations in Chicago as well? 2 Chicago Locations are missing. There was a scene where the little boy was bit by a rat in his parents apartment. That building still stands today, it was my parents apartment that was used in Uptown Chicago Windsor and Sheridan was the cross street. I believe the address is 911 w Windsor Ave as well as the location were the child received treatment for the rodent bite which was "Cuneo Hospital" which at a later time became Maryville, located on the corner of Montrose and Clarendon ave.

    1. Hi Mrs. Amour,
      At the top of this page, there's a link to a map that has almost all of the Chicago filming locations for the series on it...the apartment you mention is a missing piece of the puzzle so thank you for commenting!

    1. They filmed at my grandparent's house in Evergreen Park, IL. 9101 S. Mozart. Great memories. I met a lot of the cast and crew. I also remember meeting Julia Roberts , Fred Savage ( I believe)and Judd Nelson , bit I'm not sure they were in the series.

  5. They filmed a scene in a restaurant called The Medici on Sheridan Rd, just north of Diversey where they rigged an explosion in the elevator shaft. Something went wrong and they blew out a wall in the restaurant. The story was on the 10pm news that night and the next day I walked by there. They were cleaning up in the restaurant, stacking bricks outside a door on the sidewalk. A couple years later, I spotted Dennis Farina in Hanley Dawson Cadillac on N. La Salle St. I went inside and talked to him. He was very nice, just a regular Chicago guy. RIP Dennis.

  6. The Orbit Room was a real bar, not a set created for filming. It wasn't quite as nice inside as depicted in the series but it was cool. Met a girlfriend there one night. Sadly they tore down that whole block on Broadway to build a little shopping center.
