Pulse: Pursuits: Stars vs. Cars

Ever since the Greater Philadelphia Film Office put us on the movie-making map, celeb-scouting has become a city pastime. Alas, even Bradley Cooper loses some luster once your car’s been towed so he can film on your street—and inevitably, the GPFO “No Parking” notices elude some parkers. “Our goal is to minimize any inconvenience to neighbors and businesses,” says GPFO executive director Sharon Pinkenson, who recently met with Ward 8 leader Stephanie Singer to discuss ways to amp up notification to residents. “The film office phone number is on every notice we post. We’re geared up to help people.” Miss the memo? Get help from the Philadelphia Tow Squad — 215-685-9134 — who’ll point you to your new parking spot.
