    You can allow artistic license. The city is not set up to be the perfect TV studio.

    That neighborhood is fairly spare but you can see it's on the verge of going upscale. On street view you'll see lotsa empty lots. I say they choose that firehouse because it's new and has that great clear view of Sears Tower.

    It also occurred to me that they designed the firehouse with plenty of driveway room on both sides, and even a arrow showing which way is IN. I can just see the old guys saying, "Kids these days not only can't drive stick dey hafta to design the garage on duh house sos they don't hafta back up duh truck!" Prolly took out the fire pole because the punks can't figure it out. Dey want it to go up, too.

    Watching the previews you can see that they shot scenes for multiple episodes in the area. That same "warehouse" (really a loft condo now) is coming back and it is BTW, around the corner from where Mayor Kane was screaming about the pothole on "Boss." They keep going down West Wacker Drive to those sites. That's where the river was. BTW, there's a pretty large ledge with Lower Wacker Drive below the guardrail so the driver would really have to launch to hit the water.

    I remember this being said about the TV show Emergency! where you see them respond on a run in an urban setting followed by a rural setting followed by a beach setting. It was someone on the show that said it would be a pretty boring show if they only showed runs within their own district.

    I have no desire to see this show as I know I would just get pissed off by it. I think it will just make the fire service look bad.
