The focus on the McKinley Park neighborhood, filmed during temperate weather, follows the first episode of the show, which highlighted the Logan Square neighborhood.

In addition to discussing "what makes or breaks a great stoop," Schmitt and Krimstein opined on stoop qualifications. "That's a step, not a stoop," Schmitt said of one front entrance in the neighborhood.

Additional production credits for the show go to Keira Kennedy for cinematography, Chi Nguyen for costume design and Ron Chiu for location scouting.
