DOTM real-life filming locations

I thought it would be fun to pinpoint where some of the scenes were filmed, esp. the battle scenes, etc.

For example, the scene where the three Decepticon Suburbans are following Simmons, Bee, and company, and one of the 'cons transforms, was shot on Cline Ave in NW IN:

And here's a comparison of the Google Streetview shot w/ a movie scene:

Some scenes are easy, like the downtown Chicago battles. But the Mexican standoff scene was actually shot south of Downtown near McCormick Place West (I believe it's called), at Indiana Ave and 23rd. St:

(Huge link, sorry.)

I'll work on more of these, anybody else pin down some scenes?
