In this movie, the Daley Center is supposed to be the IRS headquarters where Harold Crick (Will Ferrell) works. At this point in the film, Harold rushes from his office to the plaza to make a call. Interestingly, we have never had pay phones in our plaza.
Will Ferrell runs down the stairs which lead to our Concourse Level. In the film, he is seeking another pay phone through a dimly lit tunnel. In actuality, he is heading towards a concession stand and the escalator which leads into City Hall.
