Parking Restrictions In Broadway/Wilson Area This Weekend

Wow! An email alert from Ald. Shiller's office that doesn't have to do with Cubs parking or movies on Cricket Hill.

Unfortunately, it does mean even less parking for residents and businesses:

"Chelsea Pictures will be filming scenes for a commercial in the area. Please look out for No Parking signs.

No Parking: Friday & Saturday, January 16 & 17 from 5am to 10pm

  • West side of Broadway from Wilson to Sunnyside

  • South side of Wilson from Broadway to Kenmore

If you have any special needs or concerns, please call the Location Manager, Al Cohn, at 773.991.9021."


  1. Judging from the scenery in that area, I doubt this is a commercial for Downy or Snuggle.

  2. ANY response from Shiller's office amounts to a giant jar of Marshmallow Fluff.

    Would love it if they'd address the 'south of Lawrence East Berlin Bloc', or the mysterious Graceland cemetary fence question.....or more importanty, the Lawrence to Montrose hideous stagnation.

    The 'critical masses' really want to know...

  3. Yeah seriously. What kind of commercial would film in this blighted area in this kind of weather?

  4. It's a commercial for Wilson Yard and she is doing some early shots for her next campaign commercial.

  5. Stark Mad

    shiller will allow the cemetery to take their sweet time besides they never fix anything in a timely manner in Uptown, every project delayed, delayed, delayed nor will shiller or her pit bulls respond to any thing on this site!!

    Is she ever in her office?
