  1. I've read that the roof of the Chicago Hilton was used as the location for the roof of the hospital. Does anyone know which episodes?

    1. Hilton Chicago at 720 S Michigan Avenue, Chicago, IL 60605 was used in # 7.05 (see my comment there) and some other episodes before that. I'm not exactly sure if it was used in season 6 already, but definitely in season 7. I'm currently rewatching the show on DVD and have to look out for it in season 8 and beyond.

  2. FYI, I used to live at 525 South Dearborn Street in Chicago, and one day ER did some filming behind the building on S. Plymouth Court. They put up an "EMERGENCY" sign on the condo building across the street from my building.

  3. Very cool blog. I wish there were move videos on the filming locations on the WB set of ER. It was an NBC show but used WB Studios. That is interesting. I would think they would have used Universal Studios or something like that.

  4. The helipad at the Hilton Chicago at 720 S Michigan Avenue, Chicago, IL 60605 is missing in the list of locations used for the hospital.

    For more information, see my comment under # 7.05.
