Long Description:
From (visit link)
"The Brothers’ digs in the city , ‘Hotel For Men Only. Transients Welcome’, no longer exists. It wasn’t blown up by Carrie Fisher (that was a large photograph of the building pasted on to flyaway polystyrene blocks), but nevertheless it has since been demolished. It stood at 22 West Van Buren Street, between South Dearborn and South State Streets. It’s now a grassy plot beneath the el – though the revamped entrance to Library station has obscured the view somewhat."

Carrie Fisher pulls the trigger at about 37 minutes into the film, while the police accompanied by John Candy are battering down the door to Jake & Elwood's room while they sleep.

Located at 22 West Van Buren at Plymouth Court, across from the Harold Washington Public Library. The corner of the building in the background is the SE corner of the Fischer Building, also waymarked(
