Orange is the New Black, season 2 episode 1, 2014
I haven’t seen this movie yet, but apparently calumet412 has: "Screencap from Transformers (4): Age of Extinction, 2014, referencing the destruction of Chicago in the film. Yes, the phone number works…”
Raw Deal, 1986
Raw Deal, 1986, on one of the upper floors of 150 N. Michigan Avenue (note the slanted windows.)
In an earlier post I mentioned a now-demolished warehouse at Roosevelt and Canal "that was so uninteresting that apparently nobody bothered to photograph it, or at least post the photos online in a place where I could find them." I must not have looked hard enough, because someone else found these two photos of the several-blocks-long building; the top photo from 1981 is by Mark Llanuza, and the bottom photo (circa “early 1980’s?”) is by Edward Kwiatkowski. Thanks to Mark and Edward for taking the photos and posting them on flickr, and a huge thanks to Patrick S. for the email pointing these photos out to me.
Raw Deal, 1986, on the now-demolished Ogden Avenue viaduct.
related: on August 10th, Forgotten Chicago will be hosting the Extension and Removal of Ogden Avenue Walking Tour: “Though much of Ogden Avenue has been vacated for more than 45 years, tangible evidence of its former existence remains…join us for this tour of one of the strangest episodes in the history of Chicago’s built environment.” I’ve been on several other ForgottenChicago tours, and they’ve all been great. Wear comfortable shoes, though—the FC walking tours have a lot of walking.
Raw Deal, 1986, at Navy Pier
Raw Deal, 1986, when Navy Pier was basically just a warehouse.
Raw Deal, 1986, at Roosevelt and Canal, on the roof of a now demolished warehouse that was so uninteresting that apparently nobody bothered to photograph it, or at least post the photos online in a place where I could find them (edit: someone found some photos.) Anyways, this is now a grocery store/strip mall parking lot.
Raw Deal, 1986, at 840 S. Canal. The large building on the far right, the Marshall Field River Warehouse, was demolished in 1994.

Raw Deal, 1986
This area has changed a lot. For one thing, everything on the left was demolished in 1989.
