Map Showcasing Filming Locations in the City and the Sloop

It shouldn't come as a surprise that the Sloop has been the setting for many TV shows and movies lately.  It seems like every week we're posting something or someone is sending us a shot of the Sloop being featured in something (speaking of which a reader sends us the picture below from Shameless).

With all this activity in the Sloop and the greater Chicago area, DNAinfo has put together a nifty interactive map that shows some of the locations where various shoots have occurred.  Here is a screen grab zooming in on the Sloop:

The link to the article and map for DNAinfo is here.

And here is what the reader sent us about Shameless (which is on Showtime):
A few months back, 16th & Wabash was closed off for a filming location in the evening. I just watched the most recent episode of Shameless and it turns out that's what they filmed there. They turned the condo building on the NE corner of 16th and Wabash into a "hospital" where Fiona (played by Emmy Rossum) gets arrested.

(Hat tip: YL!)
